Update 12th January 2021

Today we received confirmation that our cash bid for the White Horse, at the full asking price, with a guarantee to exchange contracts as soon as possible, lodged on 18th December 2020, has been rejected by the vendor, John Lloyd.

The selling agent, Fleurets, has confirmed that an alternative offer has been accepted. We do not have confirmation of who the proposed new owner is or what the future intentions for the White Horse are.

We are bitterly disappointed to bring you this news having fully met all of the demands placed upon us to achieve the purchase of the property.

The intention of Stonesfield Community Pub Group remains to do all that we can to ensure that Stonesfield continues to have a pub. As such, we shall continue to seek out the factual information that is required for us to make the best informed decision as to the next steps.
