Message from Colin Valentine

CAMRA National Chairman Colin Valentine calls passionately for the Roscoe Head to be saved

“With net pub closures still running at almost 30 a week, we can ill afford to lose thriving pubs at the heart of their community such as the Roscoe Head. As one of only five pubs to have been in every edition of CAMRA's Good Beer Guide, and the only one north of Cambridge, the Roscoe Head holds a special place in the hearts of many thousands of CAMRA member's hearts - and I include myself in that list. I have known Carole for a number of years and get to the Roscoe Head whenever I am in the area - even to the extent of taking two friends from Boston (USA) there one miserable January evening in 2012 when we were based in Manchester. No visit to Liverpool, no matter your reason, is complete without a visit to this most iconic of boozers. Carole's family have successfully run the Roscoe for over 30 years and, if CAMRA have anything to do with it, they will do so for the next 30 years. I would urge directors of the Roscoe's new owners, New River Retail, to travel up from London for a day to find out just much of a community asset the pub is and to meet with Carole with a view to negotiating the sale of the pub to her and her family.”
