A Glinton family have returned home to take over their village pub.

Nick and Brigette Frankgate, with their son Will and his wife Kelly, are the new owners of The Blue Bell in High Street, Glinton.

Nick and Brigette have both been in the hospitality industry for more than 40 years.

And Will won pub of the year in 2012 at his former workplace, The Dog and Doublet Inn in Sandon, Stafford.

Nick said: “We want to put the Blue Bell in Glinton on the map for a top destination pub where people can enjoy good food, real ales and a fantastic and friendly atmosphere in a traditional English pub.”
