Holy­well Inn pub re-opens

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

A HINCK­LEY pub has re-opened - less than a day af­ter it shut down.

The Holy­well Inn, on the junc­tion of Park Road and Lon­don Road, was set to close down on Septem­ber 2, only to be opened again the next day.

The restau­rant-pub is owned by NewRiver prop­erty trust, which also owns The Wool­comber in Atkins Way, Burbage.

The land­lord there, Thomas Lord, was asked to take over run­ning the venue.

Mr Lord said: “We didn’t want it to close, and I en­joy man­ag­ing The Wool­comber any­way, so I was happy to take it on.”

Nor­mal ser­vice has now re­sumed in­clud­ing the pub’s pop­u­lar Sun­day lunches.

The Holy­well’s open­ing hours will be as usual, from noon to ap­prox­i­mately 11pm in the week, and from noon un­til mid­night on week­ends.

The Holy­well was pre­vi­ously sub­ject to an out­line plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion by Newriver Prop­erty Trust No.4 in Novem­ber last year.

A pro­posal to de­mol­ish the pub and build nine dwelling houses on the site was re­jected by plan­ning of­fi­cers at Hinck­ley and Bos­worth Bor­ough Coun­cil in Jan­uary.
