Mark and Emily bought The Gaggle of Geese at Buckland Newton at the end of June 2008.  We closed the pub for a month to carry out some much needed renovation work and opened on the 31st of July.  Having run the European Inn in Piddletrenthide since April 2007 we felt the need for another challenge.  The Gaggle of Geese is a large pub with a skittle alley, five acres of land including a wonderful orchard and paddocks where the twice yearly charity poultry auction is held.
