Come and join us for our latest special evening , Tuesday 17th March we are having our "taste of the sea" evening , a menu ( apart from dessert ) celebrating fish . Take a look at our menu below
Sadly the Silks on the Downs has been closed since March with no plans to re-open. However the owner approached the community to see if we would be interested in buying the pub as a community asset.
The plan is to purchase and re-open the Silks, delivering everything for which it was famous. The opportunity we have goes well beyond the bricks and mortar of the pub. We will offer a wide range of additional services that will provide a valuable lifeline to the community, including space for clubs and societies, a social hub for those managing isolation and loneliness, and volunteering opportunities.
Our community share offer has now closed for applications and we have also been successful in obtaining a grant from the Government's Community Ownership Fund to support us. We hope to complete our purchase shortly and then we will be able to welcome you back to a refurbished Silks later this year.
