Live and Let Live

The Live and Let Live on Bringsty Common. At last the Live is now open and has been put back to being a Pub again after 11 years of closure.

The present owner Sue Dovey, has finished renovating the Pub after a long 4 years of waiting for planning and legal matters to get sorted. Food is served in the 'Thatch' restaurant, serving good wholesome food using local produce wherever possible. The menu will reflect the season in which it is being served, it will be based on the tradition and character of the pub offering an exceptional variety of dishes. The restaurant uses a set menu but does offer specials which you can find on blackboards downstairs.There are also a quality choice of wines to compliment the menu and for the beer drinkers a choice of real ales. Sue is looking to re-kindle the activities and interest that the pub enjoyed in its former days, both within the local community and beyond.

This 300 year old ex-cider house certainly does have a lot to offer.
