Hoole pub reopens following major investment

7 October 2020

Longstanding family pub The Piper in Hoole has reopened to the public after undergoing a major transformation.

Independent pub operators Punch have invested in the venue which closed temporarily last month, and manager David Cottam of Stowford Pub Company remains at the helm.

The pub's new makeover has enhanced its traditional feel but retained many of its original features in order to keep all of its existing character and charm.

And Punch says new life has been breathed into The Piper, with the addition of feature wallpaper, new furniture and unique pub accents as well as the addition of a brand new snug that allows guests to enjoy an intimate and relaxed dining experience.

Outside the pub has also had a revamp, and includes a beer garden with brand new furniture and festoon lightening draped over the pergola, creating a space for guests to enjoy an alfresco dining experience.

David said: “The pub has truly been brought back to life. We’re so excited to be welcoming guests back to see their new look local and we’re thrilled to be providing wholesome freshly cooked food and great quality drinks in a relaxing and safe environment once again”.

Punch’s Senior Operations Manager Jannine Leadbetter added: “This is an exciting investment by Punch in a vibrant community pub and we are extremely pleased with the new look created here.

"By recognising great people like David and continuing to work with them, we have together developed an even better pub for the area and local community."
