REGARDING your feature on traditional pubs versus the chain pubs (November 22), I am pleased to say that my local, the Three Horseshoes in Wistow, is a traditional village pub. It is privately owned and sells fine ales and excellent food served by efficient and friendly staff.
However, it is more than just a pub or a restaurant - it is part of the community. Residents use it for meetings, gatherings and parties. It has, amongst other things, raised a lot of money for cancer charities and for a free party for pensioners of the village at Christmas.
I am amazed that in the same issue as the article on village pubs, you printed a letter from somebody who uses the pub for meetings but, because their last meeting clashed with another, they wrote to you in disparaging tones.
As you point out, privately-owned pubs are increasingly at risk and minority views expressed in the letters risk undermining all the good work put in by the owners of the pub in Wistow.
