Cricketers Stuart Broad and Harry Gurney have opened their second pub, in Nottinghamshire.

The two sportsmen, who both play for Nottinghamshire and are both England internationals, have opened the Tap & Run pub, in Upper Broughton, in partnership with publican Dan Cramp.

The trio opened their first pub, the Three Crowns, in Wymeswold, Leicestershire, in August 2016. Cramp formerly worked for Moleface Pub Company and managed a pub at the Trent Bridge cricket ground in Nottingham.

£350,000 investment

Under the cricketers’ pubco Cat & Wickets Pub Company, the Upper Broughton pub has been renovated in a £350,000 investment.

The site was closed for around two years after operating as the Golden Fleece.

Now it will operate as a gastropub, with a distinct cricket theme.

Locally renowned chef Andrew Smith curated the menu, which features a signature gastro sausage roll and scotch egg.

Cricket theme

The interior of the pub features a distinct wine cellar displaying personalised scoreboards, a red leather cricketing corner and a reupholstered old village shop.

Stuart Broad said: “The wine cellar is my favourite part of the pub, I can’t wait to share a glass of wine with my dad, step dad and friends.”

More than 300 people attended a launch night, including Trent Bridge team mates Tom Moores, Jake Ball and captain Steven Mullaney.

Moores said: “It’s a great evening to support Harry, Broady and Dan and recognise all their hard work. We are all regulars down at the Three Crowns and now we are spoilt for choice.”
