Hertfields takes on third leased pub

The investment has aimed to restore The Fox to “its former glory as a great quality traditional village pub”.

Hertfordshire-based events and hospitality company Hertfields has taken on its third leased pub – The Fox at Pirton near Hitchin – following a £170,000 refurbishment with Star Pubs and Bars.

The company said the investment has aimed to restore the local to “its former glory as a great quality traditional village pub”.

The revamp has seen both the exterior of the Grade II listed building and the interior upgraded. Features such as inglenook fireplaces and original beams have been restored and a snug created.

A new kitchen will also enable The Fox to introduce food in the new year, which will focus on “pub classics” including Sunday roasts. A cellar overhaul and the installation of state-of-the art dispense equipment has also been added.

Hertfields’ owner Steve Birch said: “The Fox will be the quintessential traditional pub with real ales, open fires and a warm welcome, whether customers want to drink and socialise or enjoy some good pub grub.

“The Fox is a great addition to our growing business. Star have been extremely flexible to work with and have fully accommodated our vision for The Fox in the designs. They used an excellent team of builders and designers, and the pub looks fantastic.”

He added: “We continue to look for other new projects in and around Hertfordshire.”

Area manager Dan Hayward added: “We’re delighted to have joined forces with Hertfields at The Fox. They have just the skills required to build a successful, sustainable pub – sharp business acumen and brilliant delivery of Hospitality.”
