Article date: 21 Sep 2013

Bracknell Forest MP Dr Phillip Lee tried his hand at pulling pints, during his visit to The Old Manor, in Bracknell.

The Conservative MP’s visit was aimed at helping to highlight the importance of community pubs.

Dr Lee (right) met pub manager Ian Lynskey (centre) to learn more about beer and running a pub, as well as chatting to the customers.

Dr Lee told the Bracknell News newspaper: “I am a great supporter of the British pub and am, therefore, visiting pubs monthly around the constituency, to enjoy a pint of beer with my constituents.

“The Old Manor is a fantastic example of a vibrant community pub which is appealing to families, groups of friends and long-established locals found in Britain’s best pubs.

“I would like to congratulate them on a very successfully run local business.”

Wetherspoon’s operations director Martin Geoghegan, said: “It is great that the local MP took the time to visit The Old Manor and to chat to management, staff and customers.

“Like Dr Lee, we believe pubs to be the heartbeat of the community – and The Old Manor highlights this by catering for people of all ages, thereby creating a wonderful atmosphere.

“We trust that Dr Lee enjoyed his visit – it was certainly welcomed by everyone at the pub.”
