A RECRUITMENT drive has been launched by an Oxfordshire brewery in a bid to find people to run its pubs.

The Hook Norton Brewery is holding a special event on November 3 where bosses hope to meet enthusiastic individuals who have always dreamt of being a publican.

Hook Norton managing director James Clarke said: “Each pub is different in size, location and style of business, from town centre to village green. But what they have in common is the fact they are part of the Hook Norton Brewery family business.

“All are tenanted which means investors have the opportunity to build their own business at the same time as having the support of a family-owned brewery that really cares about them.”

The recruitment daywill run between 11am and 4pm at the Brewery’s Visitors Centre. People wanting to attend should telephone 01608 737210 and ask for a tenancy pack or see the website www.hooky-pubs.co.uk
