Running pub business is shear pleasure

A FOODIE couple have a full plate after taking on their first pub business.

Businesswoman Clare Hindle and food consultant husband Graham have already created a traditional British menu with locally-sourced ingredients after taking over the reins at the Woolpack, a Greene King pub in Fornham St Martin, Bury St Edmunds.

Mr Hindle, who has created a traditional British menu sourcing supplies from around the area, runs his own food retail consultancy while Clare runs interiors store Copeland Interiors in Bury St Edmunds.

“We have always dreamt of running a pub together and when the Woolpack became available we jumped at the chance,” said Mrs Hindle.

Mr Hindle added: “The Woolpack is a classic country pub with loads of charm and character. We want to offer our customers great British pub food and drink in a relaxed and inviting environment, sourcing everything from as near to the pub as possible.”
