Following on from Mr Earp’s decision a few months ago not to take up the option to continue his long-term lease at the Royal Oak Inn, Meavy, the Parish Council has been advertising for a new tenant publican to run the Inn.
After interviews, a new candidate is in place. There will be a trading gap between the time of Mr Earp’s departure and the installation of the new publican. The Parish Council will use this time to see that the Royal Oak Inn, a Listed Building, receives any decorating and maintenance that is required.
It is hoped to keep this temporary closure to a minimum while work goes on. We wish Mr Earp every success for the future.
