Lindsey Rose owners Sophie and Charlie Buckle celebrated just over a year since taking over the village pub with a beer festival.

Featuring more than 30 ales, plus live music, the three-day event which started on Friday and ran through to Sunday was a big success.

Thousands turned out to listen to music from bands such as The Landed, Better Than Your Boyfriend, The Martells, Words and Music and singers, The Three Chordettes.

They also enjoyed trying local ales and traditional grub for which the pub is renowned.

Sophie Buckle said: “We took over the pub from the previous owners last May and we held the beer festival last year.

“This year we had at least 1,000 people here at any one time and it was a very successful festival.

“It worked brilliantly well and people enjoyed it. We were also really lucky with the weather this year.”

The pub’s traditional bonfire night festivities are going ahead as usual this year on November 3.

Added Sophie: “The pub has always had a bonfire night. We don’t charge for it as we’ve found it’s too much administration. It’s a free event with fireworks donated by James Buckle who used to do this at his house and then donated them to the previous tenant. We are carrying it on.”
