AFTER more than two decades behind the bar, a village pub landlord is calling final orders and selling the business.
Philip Smith has owned the Woodborough Inn in Winscombe for 20 years and although he says he has enjoyed himself it is time to move on.
The 51-year-old is selling the pub in Sandford Road, which is on the market for £950,000, to spend more time with his family.
He said: “These 20 years have been really enjoyable, but I don’t want it to become not enjoyable.
“I want to stay living here in Winscombe so I would like it to remain a village-orientated pub that serves the community well and does its bit to help village life.

“Although it has been a great 20 years, I would like to spend Christmas with my family – something I haven’t done in a number of years.”
Philip will leave the business when it is sold, and plans to go travelling.
