Allow us to introduce ourselves – We have been living in Bishopstone for over 12 years now. In March 2014, we completed on the purchase of the Harrow Pub. It became clear to us that the site was going to be bought by developers, resulting in a high density development. We decided it would be better if someone with an interest in retaining the village's charm and character were in control of the Pub's immediate future.
Rescuing the pub and bringing it back to life will require a substantial investment to make it a viable business. There will need to be an extension to accommodate a more comprehensive eating area, and major refurbishment inside and out as it is in a terrible state due to years of neglect. A small enabling development to the rear will be needed in order to finance the refurbishment and to provide sufficient spare capital to get the pub off the ground.
Full plans for the Harrow renovation and development have now been re submitted to the council and available to view on the Aylesbury Vale District Council web portal.
