Real Ale Drinkers In Weymouth Fighting To Save Local Pub

8:49am 1st May 2013

Real Ale drinkers living in Wyke in Weymouth are fighting to save the only pub left in the village.

The 160 year old Albert Inn in Wyke Square is up for sale by Punch Taverns with a view to turn it into housing.

An officer for Weymouth and Portland refused to list the pub as an "Asset of Community Value" and locals are contesting this decision"

West Dorset CAMRA Chairman Dave Harris has told Wessex FM:

"Other branches of CAMRA have had somewhat less difficulty in getting premises listed under the Localism Act."

"If we get rid of the Albert Inn the nearest pub is half a mile away and it's not ideal if you want to pop out for a quiet drink."
