Troubled pub shut again

A HENLEY pub has been forced to close as a search for a new tenant continues.

A HENLEY pub has been forced to close as a search for a new tenant continues.

The Beer Tree in Duke Street shut earlier this year after landlord Paul Campion left for health reasons but re-opened in July run by a management company.

However, the Brakspear pub closed again this week after Mr Campion handed in his notice.

Chief executive Tom Davies said: “We are actively looking for a new, permanent tenant who can work with us and turn the Beer Tree into a thriving business which adds to Henley’s vibrant pub scene. The Beer Tree was trading well earlier this year and we’re confident that it will do so again.”

Mr Campion, a New Zealander, took over the pub, then called the Boathouse, in January 2012 and changed its name. He was the fifth landlord in three years.

The pub served more than 200 brands of bottled beer and customers could order in takeaway meals.
