    Well we took the plunge and we are now the proud Landlords of a 300-year-old drovers inn called the Hollybush in the tiny hamlet of Greenhaugh near Kielder in Northumberland

    https://www.hollybushinn.net/

    As many of you will know we are in a great area for biking and would love to see a few more visitors on two wheels where a hell of a warm welcome awaits, have a beer (real ale and cider on tap) or a coffee or tea or even spend the night with us in one of our seven rooms and if you’re a member of the forum or Triumph owners club we’ll sort out a bit of a discount on the room rates

    Anyway Lynne and I look forward to seeing you and perhaps we’ll swing by on one of the GMU runs as we’re only about 5 miles from Bellingham

    Congratulations John, it’s something I’ve always fancied doing running a pub.
    Good luck with your new venture. :grinning:

    It's no easy gig running a (successful) pub, and an even harder one when it offers nice accommodation, so I wish you every happiness and success in your venture. Hopefully we'll see some reports of events, progress and maybe some "tales from behind the bars" as your new life unfolds!

    Best of luck.

  10. Congratulations - Mrs F and I stayed there a couple of years ago, on the Bonneville, and it was great - brilliant location, great food and there was a singalong on the Friday night.
    We were just saying we should go up again - we will now!

    Best wishes to you and your new adventure!
