Former inns entrepreneur Tim Drake has bought the pub next to his microbrewery, Eastwood & Saunders, in Elland, West Yorkshire so that he can showcase the selection of beers he brews.

Oddfellows is run by licensee Jane Robson, who tried to buy the pub herself, but was pipped to the post by Drake.

Drake said that he has no intention of going back into the pub business since selling his 46-strong White Rose Inns to Punch Taverns last year.

He said there would be beers from other microbreweries than Eastwood & Saunders, as well as a range of imported beers.
