Support the Red Lion
AN award-winning pub landlord and brewery owner trying to purchase an historic pub in the heart of Melksham have been told they can only buy it if they promise not to run it as a public house.
Enterprise Inns, which owns the 17th century Red Lion in The City near the Cooper Avon Tires factory in Bath Road, has placed a covenant on the sale of the pub saying it cannot be run in direct competition with The Unicorn just across the road, which it also owns.
Enterprise Inns are based in this building:
3 Monkspath Hall Rd.
0121 733 7700
Guess where I would prefer to be and who I support - Bastard Suits.
