Looking Inn: The Bell Inn at Bath – a Real Success Story


When Ian Wood, the owner of the pub, made a hasty decision to sell up, the locals had very little time to take action. After a great deal of hard work and looking at various options, they decided on a community share offer.The pub had always been profitable which made the transfer and takeover a loteasier.  Today 500 members jointly own the pub which has properly paid staff and a manager.  The pub is run under Industrial and Provident Society rules governing a cooperative.They are proud to say they are the largest pub buyout project in Britain.We wish them continued success in the future.
