Fantastic news! The Offley Arms has been purchased by local Brewery Joule’s to refurbish and run as a pub.
This is great news for the village as we get to keep a pub in the centre by the pool, and with an established brewery (with a great reputation for beer and food) behind it, the pub is secured for a good many years ahead.

The pub was very nearly sold at auction, and could have gone for development instead, but Joule’s stepped in with a direct purchase after seeing the level of community support for it.
The hundreds of survey responses online and in paper form showed just how much genuine support and demand there is in the village, and there are many comments with real affection for the pub and many memories in there.
Here’s hoping that the pub will be back and available soon, and of course it’s up to us as a village to use it again!
