Updates on future of pubs in Carlton and Lambley provided by owners Star Pubs & Bars

Star Pubs & Bars has given statements


Updates have been given about two pubs by owners Star Pubs and Bars – and it’s good news for drinkers, with plans to keep them trading confirmed.

The Lambley pub on Main Street, Lambley, closed its doors on January 12.

Gedling Eye contacted The Lambley owners Star Pubs and Bars who told us ‘they hadn’t been informed that the pub was closing’.

When first contacted they said: “The Lambley was leased to an independent operator to run as their own business.

“We are keen for it to reopen as quickly as possible.”

The chain has now provided Gedling Eye with a new update, confirming they want to get the pub trading again.

A spokesperson for Star Pubs & Bars says: “There is interest in taking on The Lambley from a number of parties because it is a great pub in a great location. 

“Until an agreement with one of them is finalised we can’t provide further information.”

The firm also provided an update on the Beacon Hill on Burton Road in Carlton.

The pub is still trading but without a permanent management team in place – but this could be changing soon.

“The Beacon Hill at Carlton is open and trading with a temporary publican,” a spokesman for the pub chain said.

“We should have a new operator in place by the end of February. We’ll be able to confirm all the details and their plans for the pub once the recruitment process is finalised.”

“Once the plans are definite, we’ll be happy to share more details.”

  1. Nobody calls it The Beacon Hill….everybody called it the ‘blacks Head or just ‘Blacks’. Another good pub that will go the way of the dodo. The old Windsor Castle is still a derelict pile of rubble. Naggo’s struggling, Catholic clubs no more. Toby Jug top of the hills gone… no pubs at all in next five years. I remember when you went in town on a Friday night, caught 1030 bus back to get last orders in for 10:50 and the doors were bulging in ALL the pubs. The Bruno, couldn’t get in after 10. Saddening.
