A couple who took over The Bell Inn in Minster last month are leaving following a difference of opinion with operators Cannon Leisure.
Manager Sarah Cornwell, who lived in at the pub with partner Mark, reopened the doors of the 14th century pub on July 7, some 6 months after it last shut its doors.
Former Marlowe Academy behaviour specialist Sarah, who worked at The Bell Inn until it closed, had implemented new menus and hoped to welcome customers old and new.
But in a social media post today (August 17) Sara, and Mark, who has lived in Minster for 30 years, revealed they are leaving the pub after this coming weekend.
Matt Lacey, operations manager for Cannon Leisure, said the pub remains open and new chef Ben South will be taking the reins shortly.
He added: “Nothing is going to change, we want to keep it as the beautiful village pub it is. We hope to welcome customers old and new.”
