Marilyn and Alan Boxall took over the Greatham Inn in December 2017 and intend to continue to run the Inn as a family and dog friendly village local providing excellent food in a traditional pub setting.
Marilyn and Alan are a local couple who have always had ties to the area. Marilyn is originally from Haslemere and Alan is from Milland. They have 3 children Aidan (24), Max (21) and Nadia (17), (who all went to Greatham primary School) and last but certainly not least their springer spaniel Molly.
As the previous Landlord was also the Chef, they knew if they were to succeed in their venture they would need to find an experienced Chef. Luckily the Head Chef at Longmoor Camp was looking for a new role where he could better use his skills with a more intimate and discerning clientele. Tommy Kirk is an ex Naval Chef who served 22 years in the Navy and has since worked in Italian Restaurants and for the Compass Group as a Head Chef at Longmoor Camp.
The new owners intend to keep with the ethos of a traditional country pub with a strong community spirit. Good beer, good food and good company.
