The Birley Arms, a charming pub located at the heart of Warton in Lancashire, has reopened following a £250K investment by independent pub company Punch Pubs & Co, with Publicans Tony Davies and Zoe Shelmerdine at the helm.

The investment has breathed new life into this well-loved country pub, enhancing its original charm and character that locals know and love. Beautiful feature wallpaper and unique tiled flooring accompanied by reclaimed leather furniture, eclectic finishes, and cosy mood lighting have created a contemporary spin on a traditional pub look.

There is also a plethora of heating, allowing the space to be enjoyed all year round as well as its own screen showing all key sporting events.

When speaking about the investment, Tony says, “Welcoming locals back to the pub to see the transformation has been fantastic. After a difficult year, it’s been great to see the community come back together and enjoy their new look pub. We’re really excited for the future, and we can’t wait for many great years to come at the Birley Arms.”

Punch’s Operations Director Neil Dawson says, “We’re really pleased with what our investment has created here at the Birley Arms, and it’s been fantastic to see the locals enjoying it once again. This is an established, well-loved pub and we’re confident that together with Tony and Zoe the Birley Arms will continue to operate at the very heart of the community it serves.”
