The Half Moon and Spread Eagle pub is our village pub and some regular commentary by an observer about it just seems a good idea. 

Update 25/02/24

It is a while since the last entry and, in a few sentences you will see why. Fake news? No! Rumour? 

Definitely not! The facts? Unambiguously so - any variation is a manifestation of the previous two. Matt has been struggling to manage two pubs, The Cricketers in Longparish and our HMSE. However, a positive has been that he has employed a good chef, Lee, who has already made a significant improvement to the pub offer. Lee can see the potential of the pub and very much wants to have the opportunity to release that potential. 

The path was been pursued with Nick and Phil, our awesomely patient and philanthropic benefactors, to release Matt and give Lee the reins. 

With no warning, Matt’s business across the two pubs collapsed. Luckily all was in place for Lee, with the support of his wife Ruth, to step straight in and the Half Moon and Spread Eagle is up and running. I am sure we all wish Lee and Ruth good fortune for their new venture, we owe Nick and Phil enormous appreciation for their continued determination to see the pub flourish and, hopefully, they can all enjoy our support.”
