The Leamington Spa Courier wrote:The landlady: The focal point of a rural community
Central to every rural community is the village pub, in Ufton The White Hart Inn is run by newcomers to the village Marion and Robert Jones.
The couple who have only been in the village for a year were first attracted to the village by its picturesque views.
Mrs Jones said: "It was the view from the car park, you can see for miles, right across the Malvern Hills."
The landlady explained that she much preferred running pubs in more rural settings as opposed to towns.
She said: "You get to know the village and become part of the community. We can join in the community as well as hold things for it.
"We always say that it takes about two years to settle in, but we're getting quite a lot of support from the locals.
"There are about 20 locals who use the pub all the time, as well as a lot of it is passing trade."
The pair has recently been organising events that members of the village have supported.
She added: "We've just had a karaoke, which went extremely well and we are planning to hold a race evening soon."
