This is a real community pub and I was pleased to hear how Lisa and her team want to work with local groups and residents to make the business a success. With Fairhaven Lake just a stone’s throw away it is really good to know the pub is dog friendly. The refurbishment looks lovely and I know Lisa and her team are working hard to make a success of The Fairhaven. It was lovely to catch up with her and I hope to be able to visit again in the future.’

It is great to see so many new and returning faces and we can’t wait to keep welcoming more individuals in.’
