The Gardeners Rest pub has been a community-owned pub since 2016 and currently has over 430 investors who elect the management board and have a say in how the pub develops as a community enterprise, benefiting its customers and the wider community.

Your investment will give you a stake in a professionally managed pub which also creates supported training opportunities for young adults who are often excluded from the workplace, and which provides space for music and the arts.

You can buy shares for as little as £100 for 100 shares (and thereon in multiples of £100) and these can be held by individuals or a group. Each shareholder is entitled to one vote at the AGM. 

An outline of the latest share offer terms can be found here.
