The pub company which has asked tenants at pubs in Great Yarmouth and Gorleston to leave has defended its decision.

Craft Union Pub Company has given notice to the tenants of The Feathers pubs in Great Yarmouth and Gorleston to leave.

Fiona Patterson, operations manager, said: 'We will be converting two pubs named The Feathers into Craft Union sites. The Craft Union model puts quality pubs back in the heart of communities by reinvigorating them with investment to enhance the features of the pub and improve the overall experience for the customer.

'The operator is the most important part of our business and making sure that we have the right person for the pub is an essential part of our operating model. We will work closely with the current occupants and the community to identify a publican and are looking forward to the pubs flourishing when they reopen.'
