Convince McMullens NOW to grant Marcus and Amy TWO MORE years at The Yew Tree, Walkern.

We love The Yew Tree in Walkern and value it as a Chinese Restaurant, Takeaway and a local village hub where we socialise and enjoy a drink together.

It would seem the pub as we know it is under threat... Marcus has been given notice by McMullens Brewery that they have terminated his contract.  He has until the end of August and the pub apparently will shortly be on the market.

Amy and Marcus have worked hard at The Yew Tree for more than 8 years and have built a popular and thriving business which is friendly, welcoming and serves some of the best Chinese food for miles around.  Whole families, young and old enjoy the atmosphere and many travel from surrounding villages and towns to eat, drink and celebrate there.  My children have enjoyed it since they were very young and continue to use it as adults.

Marcus and Amy would have liked to have continued on at The Yew Tree until their son leaves school, but McMullens seem to have pulled the rug from under them some 2 years too early.

Please sign this petition to make your voice heard that you also wish to see Marcus and Amy to be granted a new contract by McMullen Brewery to run The Yew Tree for at least two more years and preferably as long as they care to continue.

Personally I use the pub on a weekly basis. If a landlord wishes to move on under their own volition then so be it, but I believe it unfair for the brewery to have terminated the contract thus forcing their hand.

A reminder to McMullens of their philosophy from their own web site...

Our Philosophy - is one word: Respect
Respect for our customers, who are spending their hard-earned pounds with us.
...
Respect for our tenants and pub operators, who commit to business relationships with us...

SO...

Respect your loyal customers, who are spending their hard-earned pounds with you. (signed below)

Respect your tenants and pub operators, who commit to business relationships with you.
