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.
For anyone who wants a natter, a good pint or an enjoyable meal, then I thoroughly recommend the Three Horseshoes at Wistow.
