Community Owned

Freehold Owner: Community Benefit Society

Other Freehold Owner: Raven Mad Limited

Year Purchased: 2009

The Raven Inn pub closed in 2009 and was destined for conversion into housing estate when it failed to reach its reserve price at auction. The local community decided to buy back the pub with the help of the TV programme “Save our Boozer”. A company ‘limited by guarantee’ was set up to run the pub, Raven Mad Ltd. The Raven Inn is now staffed entirely by volunteers and any profit must be used to fund village community projects. They pride themselves in serving as much local produce as possible and one of their three real ales is always brewed by Cwrw Iâl which is made just up the road by their sister community company. The community group have now secured £102,000 of government funding from the Community Ownership Fund (COF). See website for more details.
