Ei Group, has announced it has invested more than £3m in refurbishing its pubs across the West Midlands.
Refurbishment projects include a £115,000 investment in The Denbigh Arms in Monks Kirby, which has seen both its interior and exterior refurbished, including an extension of its seating area. Denbigh Arms publicans, Nigel and Paula Wright had run the pub for two years before beginning the refurbishment project with Ei Publican Partnerships.
A further £122,000 has been invested in a redecorating project at The Horseshoe in Shipston on Stour, which has seen both the interior and exterior trading areas refurbished, alongside an extension to the food offering.
Ei Publican Partnerships regional manager Paul Vavasour, said: “We have worked closely with Nigel and Paula, who are highly experienced operators, to enhance the pub in a way that supports their business growth plans.
“They knew it was important to retain a traditional pub element that catered for locals who enjoy a social drink, but they also saw an opportunity to build the food offering. I’m delighted to say that through our joint investment in The Denbigh Arms we’ve managed to achieve both so the locals are happy and the pub is thriving.
“We have a large portfolio of fantastic pubs across the West Midlands which means we can usually find just the right venue for our publicans to thrive. We work closely with them to make sure they have the tools and ongoing support to create pubs that truly become the hub of their local communities.”
