The Meynell Ingram Arms

A statement from Berkeley Inns Ltd:

Berkeley Inns Ltd are extremely delighted to announce the acquisition of the much-loved destination pub, The Meynell Ingram Arms.  With the enormous help of two local families, we are now in a position to begin the reinstatement of the Meynell to one of the county's foremost hostelries.

We will begin work in December with some minor structural alterations following this in the new year with a major refit of the interior and redesign of the terrraces and gardens, we hope to open for trade on April 1st 2019.  Please keep an eye on our website

We will provide an offer which combines the best parts of our Cock Inn at Mugginton and The Horseshoes at Long Lane (also owned by Berkeley Inns Ltd) retaining much of the individuality that has always made the Meynell such a special place.  Something for everyone including 'canine friends and their muddy owners'.

QUOTE FROM HOWARD THACKER, Managing Director - Berkeley Inns Ltd:

"The Meynell is an iconic, much loved pub and very important facility for locals and those from further afield.  We aim to re-instate the pub to its former position in the community with a sympathetic re-fit and a fabulous food and drink offer combined with unmatched service."

 Best Kept Village 2018

Hoar Cross Village came second in their category in the Best Kept Village Competition for 2018.  This is an improvement on our third place last year.  The Certificate awarded to the Village can be viewed here.  Many congratulations to all those who supported this event.  More members of the community took part in the litter picking, plant watering etc etc than in previous years.  It has also enabled us to meet socially in a village that has no pub, or village hall. 

We will be entering again next year and plan to meet early in the year to make our plans for 2019.  Judges comments have now been received and again can be viewed here.  There are some very nice compliments together with helpful comments that we can use for next year.
