Brandon Foresthistorical closure era: late 20th century
closed 1992 circa
A short lived estate pub (it ran for about 20 years) built on the same site as the previous Fox & Hounds.
I used to manage the Forest public house in Brandon back in the late 1980ies; it was a thriving business at that time, so I am very surprised to find out now that it is one of many pubs closed in Brandon. The pub had great support from the USAF and the RAF at that time. Unfortunately I had to leave due to personal reasons, some great friends of mine lived across the road from the pub, (names Jim and Linda) they would have great stories to tell. I now live in southern Ireland but always miss the Forest pub.Catherine O'Sullivan
