Beer is in the blood of Liz and Adam Curran who are to reopen a 14th Century pub on Saturday (20), eight months after it closed.

They have previously run a pub in Germany, while Liz grew up around her grandad’s and uncle’s pub in the UK.

Now they have taken on The Blue Boar at Walsham-Le-Willow, a Grade II listed building dating back to the 1360’s.

“There has been a real excitement in the village that they are getting their pub back,” said Liz.

“I can’t wait. We want to be part of this village for the forseeable future.

“It brings back really good memories for me. I want it to be a really lovely family orientated country pub,” said Liz.

The bar will open on Saturday with live music and will specialise in real ales.

The kitchen and restaurant will reopen after a refurbishment and will create around 10 jobs.

Liz plans to hold family fun days, barbecues, hog roasts, and beer festivals but will also put in a suggestion box.

“It may be a quiz night or dinner and dance night or something else. It is not about what we want, it is about what the locals want,” Liz said.
