Staff Family Give Their Notice To The White Lion

 The White Lion opened as Broadwindsor’s Community pub on 29th April 2022. Regrettably, the management team of Kate Staff with her two daughters, Chloe & Louise have given three months notice to Broadwindsor Community Pub Ltd. led by Chairman Rick Dyke.

In their second issue of ‘The White Lion Roars‘ newsletter Rick delivers the “Sad News To Share” stating that the Staff family will be leaving in mid-February 2023, Rick wished them well for their future and added that they are now looking for a new team to manage the pub and, of course, states he will keep us updated.

Coming back to the present day…. please support the pub this evening (Sunday 20th) as they are holding another one of their popular Quiz nights.  Starting at 6pm. Teams a maximum of 4 people. £3 per person. Cash only requested.

English FlagMonday is England‘s first match in the World Cup v. Iran and the pub will open at 12 noon for the live match which will be shown on television at 1pm.

Open at Christmas and a disco for New Year’s Eve (a.k.a. Hogmanay), they are serving refreshments after the Christmas carols in Bernards’ Place at 4pm on Saturday, 17th December and welcoming back The Silver Lining Band on Friday, 23rd December.

Good luck to one and all!

Pub Is The Hub’s Support For The White Lion

The White Lion’s new kitchen was opened with the expert help and a Community Services Fund grant from Pub is The Hub. As they now increase their food service, they are planning to offer a takeaway menu too. You can already have one of Louise’s delicious puddings to take home if you can’t manage one after your meal 🙂

All dishes are home-made with locally-sourced produce, with meat and cheese supplied by Nick Tett Butchers, Beaminster and fish from Davy’s Locker in Bridport, and fruit and vegetables from Washingpool Farm, Bridport.

Manager Kate Staff (above) said: “The new food offer has been attracting more local people into the pub and helping to create connections. We had 36 farmers meet up on pie night which was a great way to get them talking and socialising.”
Our vision is to make the White Lion the hub of Broadwindsor where everyone feels welcome.

To book your table, please speak to Chloe when in the pub or telephone: 01308 867070.

Reg Clarke, regional advisor from Pub is The Hub presented Chairman Rick Dyke with the certificate recognising the importance of The White Lion to the local community.
The plaque reads:

This pub has been
recognised for its important role
at the heart of
local community services

So what is Pub is The Hub?

Pub is The Hub is a not-for-profit organisation, which offers independent specialist advice to publicans on rural services diversification or the options for the community ownership of pubs, so they can all provide viable local services at the heart of their community.

With a proven track record of rural project development and delivery over the last 20 years, Pub is The Hub has worked with great publicans to open shops, libraries, cafes, community cinemas, allotments, play areas and much more. Since 2013, the organisation has also been able to offer small grants through its Community Services Fund.

Pub is The Hub has helped over 600 pubs diversify, with almost 200 of these benefitting from help through the Community Services Fund.

Building on its community services work, in 2018 Pub is The Hub conceived its ‘Join Inn – Last Orders for Loneliness’ campaign. ‘Join Inn’, specifically looks to support publicans and their communities to become better connected, helping local people feel less isolated and, in the process helping to alleviate loneliness.
