Accrington pub given new lease of life with major £340k investment

The project will transform the tired local into a family friendly pub serving top quality home-cooked food and freshly made pizzas under the stewardship of Stuart and Melanie, who for the last eight years have run a popular deli in Blackburn.  Stuart and Melanie also over 25 years of experience have between them at McDonald’s Restaurants, with Stuart having been the General Manager at two of the Northwest’s busiest in Blackpool.

Funds are being spent on a complete overhaul of the interior and exterior of the pub which will see the installation of a theatre style pizza preparation area so customers can see their pizzas being made, and a deli counter to showcase some of the products available in the range of tasting platters on the menu.

A new drinking area will be created with high butchers block tables and seating, and the rear room will become a multifunctional area; doubling as both dining area with party table and a function room.

Outside the pub will benefit from a complete redecoration, signage and new planting.

Stuart commented on the refurbishment:  “I’ve had in mind the type of pub I’ve wanted to run for a number of years and am really excited that we have the opportunity to do so, thanks to this massive investment by Star Pubs & Bars

“We’re looking forward to a new life in the area and to become an important part of the community, having had a great deal of positive feedback from local people already. The Hyndburn Restaurant and Bar will have a real family friendly feel and, as parents of three children ourselves, we think we will be able to deliver great food for kids at great prices.

 “With the pub we’re able to combine two great passions – a love of good quality food and also excellent service. We intend to be among the best food pubs in the area, with a real focus on delivering a ‘great pub – great food – great price’ experience for our customers.”

Chris Jowsey Star Pubs & Bars trading director said “We’re delighted to be investing in and helping Stuart to realise his dream and wish him and Melanie the best of luck in their new venture.  They have the ideal background and enthusiasm to create a fantastic top quality family friendly food pub.”
