Re-opening May 2020
From the Wind in the Willows, to Three Men in a Boat and not forgetting HG Well’s Mr Polly, the Beetle and Wedge was always an Inn. Ben (Smith) is determined to turn back the clock and return the Beetle & Wedge to being just that.
As the local says in Three Men in a Boat (to say nothing of the dog):
“It had been a fine day to-day, and we told him that it had been a fine day yesterday, and then we all told each other that we thought it would be a fine day to-morrow;”
The Beetle & Wedge Boathouse is under new ownership as of Friday 28th February.
I am delighted to welcome Ben Smith as the new owner. All staff will be transferring over to the ‘new look’ Beetle & Wedge & I wish him & them every success in the future when they re-open mid-May as 'The Beetle & Wedge Inn'.
A HUGE thank you to everyone in Moulsford for all your support over the last 14½ years.
My thanks & appreciation to you all, Stephanie.
