The Brickmakers Arms has been quietly undergoing a transformation over the course of the last week and is set to open its’ doors officially with a new look from 7pm this evening. The ‘snug bar’ has remained open whilst the main bar and old pool-room have undergone an intensive refreshment process and landlady Victoria Hancox is looking forward to greeting folk with some hospitality to enjoy the new feel of the place,
“The refurb is nearly finished, we’re just putting on the finishing touches right now.” says Victoria, “We’ll be right and ready to greet folk with some ‘fizz and nibbles’ from 7 O’Clock this evening”
Work on refreshing the place has been carried out around the clock for the last 7 days. Whilst the pub aims to retain its’ traditional vibe, there is also a move to make it more inviting to folk looking for a relaxing environment.
“We’re keen to keep the traditional pub drinking vibe, but make the place more welcoming to new visitors.”
One of the big changes regulars will notice, will be the disappearance of the pool table, a move intended to enhance the pubs’ friendly feel and seating availability.
“We’ve aimed to really freshen up the place, not only to impress new visitors, but also to provide a better environment for our regulars. We didn’t want to lose our overall pub feel, or the friendly atmosphere we pride ourselves on.”
Residents are warmly invited to go take a look and see what they think.
