A mother and daughter have pledged to revitalise and bring back punters to a community pub in Wymondham after taking over the running of their local.

Debby and Charlotte Casey come from a family of publicans and already have a combined total of 10 years working behind the bar of the Robert Kett.

The new landlords of the pub in Lime Tree Avenue, who live locally, took over the tenancy of the Greene King-owned public house last week and already have big plans for the place.

Mrs Casey, 47, whose parents and grandparents were publicans in north London, said the community had welcomed the change of management with open arms.

“It has been fantastic. Because we have been customers for ten years and we have worked here, everyone knows us and we have got a lot of support.”

“It has had a succession of temporary managers, a couple were fantastic and a few have been here for a few months, and a lot of customers have left. We want to be here for the long haul and give consistency to the customers and make it a community pub again,” she said.

Mrs Casey has been behind the bar at the Robert Kett for four years and her daughter, Charlotte, 22, has worked there for the last six years.

The mother and daughter landlords are already looking to offer a new menu of homemade dishes and traditional pub grub and want to start coffee mornings for local mums.

Mrs Casey added that Greene King was also going to redecorate the outside of the public house in time for the summer and football World Cup.

“A lot of people have been saying it is nice a mother and daughter are going for it and have the experience. We are hoping to make it a long-term tenancy. It is a big estate and we are hoping to bring everyone together from young, old, mums and sports fans and cater for everyone,” she added.
