The Dean Tavern

Supporting the Newtongrange Community

The Dean Tavern operates using the Gothenburg public house system, a means of management which was established in the 1860s.  

A team of appointed trustees are responsible for the financial governance of The Dean Tavern 2018:.

Investing in Our Village


The profits generated by The Dean Tavern are dispersed back into the immediate community.  

Across the years, the trust has played a pivotal role in developing the village of Newtongrange.  Erecting and establishing a range of public buildings for the village, we also support local community activities including the Newtongrange Silver Band, Newtongrange Star FC and the Newtongrange Children's Gala.
