...................And demolished.

As I feared (and expected) the place soon closed again. Bateman's had permission to build 3 houses on the car park and convert the historic centuries-old pub building itself into a fourth house. Then they sold it to another property developer who is apparently demolishing the pub to make way for a further new build: this seems to be the case as when I passed a couple of weeks ago the valuable Collyweston slates had already been stripped from the roof - no doubt these will prove to be "a nice little earner". RIP the Hit or Miss.

This has been a superb local in the past, run by locals for locals and where many years ago my late grandfather and his pals were regulars and my late grandmother used to play the piano for the annual Christmas carol evening. In recent years it has changed hands a number of times, and the owning brewery, Bateman's, now has planning permission to convert it to housing and build on the car park. It was recently taken over by another new tenant who has pledged to make a go of it, but it has been frequented by few in recent years (it is only a hundred yards or so from the excellent Jolly Brewer) and it will be a soul-destroying task to increase trade to a sustainable level. I wish them luck, and will visit when next in town, but fear the worst.

Changed hands since my last visit, unfortunatley the Ale has gone from Superb to don't bother.

Changed hands a few weeks ago, now run by a couple with local roots. Bateman's beers were in good form recently, and the welcome was warm. A small local pub which has done well to survive and deserves support. A stone's throw up Foundry Road from the Jolly Brewer, and a minute from the Green Man down the passage almost opposite.

This is a Batemans pub just up the road from the Jolly Brewer. Enjoyed Bateman Miss England when we visited earlier this month. Outside seating that will be great in the summer months.
