Everards Brewery is planning to convert The Horseshoe pub in Braunston Road, Oakham, into a convenience store.

The firm says the pub is “no longer viable” because of falling trade in recent years.

A spokesman said the plans would create up to 25 jobs.

The company is in the process of notifying people living nearby of its proposals and says it will make a planning application in the next few weeks.
