He is best known for taking wickets as part of England's feared pace attack but Stuart Broad is also making an impact on the UK pub scene.

Last year he teamed up with Nottingham and England One Day International, Harry Gurney, and award-winning licensee, Dan Cramp, to set up The Cat & Wickets Pub Company.


Harry, Dan and Stuart take guard behind the bar at The Three Crowns


Their first pub, The Three Crowns in Wymeswold, Leicestershire, has been up and running for nine months and the trio are now looking to expand their estate after a successful start.

Inapub visited the pub with Sky this week to see how they have fared in their opening months in the trade.

Read next month's issue of Inapub magazine to see how they divide responsibilities, decide on the offer and why you won't see much in the way of cricket memorabilia on the walls.
