Pub shut again after landlord has to leave

A PUB in Henley has closed after the landlord left for health reasons.

A PUB in Henley has closed after the landlord left for health reasons.

Paul Campion took over the former Boathouse on the corner of Greys Road and Duke Street in January last year.

The Brakspear pub was refurbished and re-opened as the Beer Tree, which sold more than 200 types of bottled beer.

Mr Campion, who also ran three other pubs in the area, was the fifth landlord in as many years.

Tom Davies, Brakspear chief executive, said: “Unfortunately, the previous tenant had to give us notice due to health reasons.

“We are actively seeking a new tenant but for a number of reasons it is taking us longer than we hoped it would.However, we are confident that we will find someone to run the Beer Tree and are looking forward to re-opening this pub, which was trading well until its closure.”

When Mr Campion opened the pub, he said that it would be for people who enjoyed quality beer.

The pub had previously been closed for almost three months after Dan and Tracey Taverner had run it for less than a year.

Before them, the pub was called the Queen’s Head and was operated by Intrepid Leisure, of Market Place, Henley.

Brakspear closed the business in September 2010, saying it was “not comfortable” with the late-night operation.
