Residents asked to buy village pub for community

A MAN is fronting a bid to buy the pub in the village where he grew up.

Marketing director Max Tilney, 41, hopes to re-open the Bottle and Glass in Binfield Heath, which closed in July, and run it himself.

He used to drink in the Brakspear pub when he was younger and says it “deserves a future”.

Mr Tilney, who now lives in Gallowstree Common with his wife Rebecca, outlined his plans at a meeting of Binfield Heath Parish Council on Monday.

The council registered the Grade II listed pub as an asset of community value with South Oxfordshire District Council before Christmas.
