Faye and Yvan Williams, landlords of Oddfellows, in the High Street, hope the staff will retain their jobs under new management, when Heavitree Brewery hands over the tenancy in June.

Mr and Mrs Williams, who took over Oddfellows three years ago, plan to concentrate more time on their Exeter business, the Speakeasy Cocktail Lounge, in New North Road.

An Oddfellows spokesperson said the couple ‘hope not to make any redundancies’ and were ‘very optimistic’ that the staff can carry on their jobs with new landlords.

Faye Williams said: “We loved setting up the pub in Exmouth and are proud to have created new jobs and invested in the local community.

“We’ll be handing over a beautiful building to the town and want to take this opportunity to thank our customers and also the amazing team for all their hard work and wish the new landlords every success going forward.”

Husband Yvan said: “Faye and I took the decision not to renew the tenancy on the Exmouth pub as we want to concentrate on our well-established pub in Exeter and have time to focus more on our increasingly popular pop-up event bars.

“This part of the business has grown exponentially over the last couple of years and we’re excited about the diversity and variety it is bringing to our working lives.”
