Spread Eagle pub at Hockerton

Our local pub is up for auction next week, so with unanimous support from a parish meeting, Hockerton has applied to list it as an asset of community value on the basis of:

  • History of community events, from Jubilee fetes to Bin Day Beers
  • Last accessible shared space in the village
  • Site is unsuited to housing
  • Potential for diversification of services
  • Clear appetite for good food and drink in the area

The Spread Eagle has also played an important role in oiling the wheels of our village’s energy co-operative, Sustainable Hockerton, and in helping it celebrate its successes.

Any enterprising chefs or publicans looking to own a zero carbon pub – look no further!
