The day to day management of the pub is carried out by a committee of up to 12 members – made up of shareholders, or specially co-opted experts.
Our current management committee consists of 7 Great Bromley, Little Bromley, Wix and Ardleigh residents. At each AGM a new Committee is formed, where the shareholders will be able to volunteer to be on the Committee for the next year. We also have a Marketing Group consisting of 8 volunteers who meet once a month to plan events and promote advertising.
