Save the Vic

Residents of Glasson Dock are getting together to prevent one of the local pubs being turned into flats. At a meeting in the village on the 23rd March, over 30 people vowed to save the Victoria, previously owned by Mitchells, and closed now for a year.

Norman Milligan, convenor of the group, said Mitchells deliberately ran this pub down so they could say it was unviable. They're wrong.

Mitchells sold the Victoria last year to Andrew Barker and Graham Cass, along with three other pubs, on the departure of the former from his position in the company. The other three have stayed as pubs.

Unspoilt rural pub wins prestigious award

The Lunesdale Branch of CAMRA is pleased to announce that its 2016 Pub of the Year is the Limeburner’s Arms in Nether Kellet. This was chosen by a panel of judges using definite criteria, from nominations by local members. The certificate of the award was presented at a ceremony in the pub well-attended by both pub regulars and CAMRA members. Presenting the certificate, Branch Chairman Michael Dillon said, β€œIt is a real pleasure to present this award to an unspoilt rural pub. Three other pubs were nominated and the result was very close, but to win this award you don’t have to be a smart town pub having a big range of real ales. The Limeburner’s Arms came out on top as it is a very good rural community pub selling good locally brewed real ale at reasonable prices. It is a friendly pub welcoming both locals and visitors alike and customers will always talk to strangers. Nether Kellet would be worse off if it were to close.” Receiving the certificate, proprietor Joe Moore said, β€œI was quite shocked to receive this. Thanks to the members of CAMRA for choosing me and my customers for supporting me.”
