A popular Newbury pub has re-opened after a stunning six-figure renovation after being closed for six weeks.

The owners of the Old Waggon & Horses 1950 style pub, located on 26 Market Place, decided to complete the revamp after they took the reins 18 months ago.

Whilst still maintaining the 1950’s character and charm of the Grade II listed building, there will be a fresh design, new bars, and brand-new fixtures.

Pub operator Jake Taylor is joined by existing staff and new team members.

He said: “We are thrilled to be reopening. The pub looks absolutely beautiful, and we would urge everyone to come along and see what we’ve done. We are all about community here with residents and businesses and we can’t wait to see everyone again.

“We are a very diverse pub, so it is wonderful to be open for Pride. It is going to be a lively and very busy weekend! With our late-night openings this is very much the place to be in Newbury.”

The pub, located in Newbury re-opened on Friday, June 23 with a champagne party for local residents and business owners.

This is just in time for the town’s Pride celebration which will take place across the weekend of ^th, 7th and 8th July.

As a canal side pub, the revamp also includes a newly refurbished canal side area to enjoy beautiful views over the water.

Other upgrades include the pub’s upgrade sound system along with a bigger dance floor and new TV screens, as well as a games area.

The Waggon & Horses is part of the multiple award-winning Craft Union Pub Company, who were named the Best Community Operator at the 2021 and 2022 Publican Awards.
