The Willow Bank pub in Anfield has reopened its doors following a £172,000 investment!

This fantastic community pub has been given a new lease of life and will be operated by new Publicans, Sam and Danny Williams. Sam and Danny are passionate about pubs and have a wealth of experience in hospitality and thrive on creating epic experiences for customers.

This much-loved pub has been transformed creating more space for customers to enjoy great drink and entertainment. Work has included a complete refurbishment inside and out with new signage, comfortable fixed seating and soft furnishing throughout. The all-important stage has been given a revamp and is ready to be used for some epic live music events. All key live sporting events will be shown on TV in full HD. The investment has given the pub a modern and fresh look.

Managing Director for Punch, Andy Spencer said, “This is a significant investment by Punch in an established community pub and we are extremely pleased with the new look created here. With our new Publicans Sam and Danny at the helm we are confident that the Willow Bank will operate at the very heart of the community it serves.’’

The pub will offer an extensive range of lagers, ciders and premium spirits as well as a new food menu which includes bucket sharers and burgers alongside traditional pub food. To match a great food and drink offer this community pub will continue to host all the key sporting events of the year and with Liverpool FC walking distance away is the perfect venue for those pre and post-match drinks and celebrations.

Sam said, “We are really excited to be here at the Willow Bank. We love this pub and the investment has really done the place proud! We have great plans for the pubs future and are here to give a warm welcome to all who want to share a thoroughly enjoyable and unforgettable time with us.’’
