AFTER nearly a decade at an award-winning pub, a fifth generation landlady is settling in nicely to her new surroundings at Bromham’s Greyhound.
Tara Adams, 46, and her chef husband Danny, 41, took over the pub in the High Street in mid-May and have been overjoyed at the welcome they have received from the community.
The couple spent a very successful decade at the White Horse Inn in Compton Bassett, which won Wiltshire Life’s best pub in 2012 and had an AA Rosette, but have now moved to Bromham with a focus on local produce, a friendly atmosphere and good value food.
“We are thoroughly enjoying it so far. The welcome we have received has been wonderful. To go from serving 100 people or so to 1800 here is great,” said Mrs Adams, who along with her husband and daughter Soraya, 17, live above the pub.
“My daughter has an interview to do hospitality at Bath College so who knows she could be a sixth generation land lady.”
From August 1 the pub, which still gets it beers from Wadworth brewery, in Devizes,will undergo refurbishment for three to four weeks but the couple confirmed it will remain open. in that time.
“I can confirm it will not be closed. It is such a huge place with multiple bars and great garden with a great family buzz to the place,” she said.
After that work is completed, the pub are planning a fundraiser for Julia’s House in September after previously raising more than £1,300 for the charity at their old pub last November.
“They are a great charity and we are keen to help them again. We are trying to do a day of food, music and entertainment which should be fantastic,” she said.
