A pub in a Fenland village is once again looking for new tenants.

The current occupants of The George in Doddington are due to leave on October 16, so Elgood's Brewery - who own the premises - are now looking for "suitable tenants" to take it on.

An Elgood's spokesperson said: "The current tenants, who run the pub as an independent business, have handed their notice in, so we are looking for suitable tenants to take over.

"But we haven't had much interest as of yet."

Elgood's will continue to own the premises, which is tied to the brewery for draught products.

The spokesperson added: "We want to find suitable new tenants as soon as possible.

"It's a pub that has a lot of potential. There's a lot of space upstairs which could be developed for a bed and breakfast.

"There's a significant outdoor area, too, and there's a lot of potential for the pub to provide extra amenity for the village.

"We would love to have tenants in there that would see the pub's potential."
