Harmston Village and Friends save The Thorold Arms Public House

Updated: Oct 18, 2018



The Throrold Arms 2017

Harmston Thorold Arms was built in 1740 and our earliest record of trading as a Public

House was about 1760. So when this Historic and important Public House was under threat

of being sold off for housing, and the villagers realised that they were about to lose a vital

cornerstone of the community, it reacted swiftly by galvanising to purchase the pub as

their own.

TapCo (Thorold Arms Property Company ) was formed and 126 investors have bought

shares in the property. The Thorold Arms was made into an Asset of Community Value and the purchase was made with enough in the pledged investments to renovate and refurbish the building to a high standard into an excellent potential future business in the heart of

the community.


The Thorold Arms will continue trading as a rural Public House with quality beverages and good food available to entice customers from near and far.


These are exciting times for Harmston. This cohesive village has demonstrated its need and enthusiasm to have a first class Public House in its midst. TapCo are now talking to builders to carry out essential work and renovate this lovely building to an Architects design brief, and to find the enthusiastic and creativeTenants who will realise the dream of the village and take this historic public house into the next phase of its future. Too many of our old rural pubs are being closed nationally and Harmston are resolute to make The Thorold Arms survive.


So the directors and share-holders of The Thorold Arms are now actively seeking

appropriate Tenants ahead of reopening this lovely old pub. Interested candidates should
