Lager brewery buys pub

A NEEDHAM Market pub has been bought by a nearby brewery which is launching into its first public house acquisition.

The Rampant Horse in the town has been purchased by Calvors which brews lager from its brewery at Coddenham Green.

Alec Williamson, from Calvors, said: “We are delighted to have acquired our first public house and will be offering products from in and around Suffolk for both food and drink to support local businesses and the community.”

The 16th century pub was sold as a freehouse.
