Do you remember when this was the Crows Nest Cowplain?
I visited this pub a few times, including just prior to the closure of the pub.
The land was bought by a developer, the developer closed the pub … the nursery opened …
… and the developer built houses on the former pub car park.
The owners of the pub said that the Crows Nest was turning a profit prior to it’s closure.
The next-nearest pub to the former Crows Nest is The Spotted Cow Cowplain.
It was a shame this community asset had to close, was there anything that could have been done to retain this pub, or was the outcome unavoidable?
