Investment In The Local Community Pays Off

The Talbot Pub, Euxton Post Refurb

Trade is up 70% at The Talbot, Euxton thanks to a £320,000 refurbishment which updated the pub with a stylish contemporary look. It also expanded the games room, added 12 new screens, introduced food and transformed the outside with al fresco eating and drinking areas and a children’s playground. Food is now 15% of turnover and the garden, which boosts covers by 50%, is packed on warm days and evenings. 

Pub operator Chris Tulloch of Blind Tiger Inns says: “Feedback has been phenomenal. People want quality on their doorsteps. The pub’s new look made an instant impact attracting previous non-pub goers. The range of improvements and activities has made regulars of new customer groups including young people, families and sports fans from across the area.” The refurbishment is part of Star’s £20 million investment in creating great locals in 2017.
