The Birch Tree pub in Brierley Hill, near Stourbridge, is back open for business with a fresh new look following our massive investment of nearly £300,000. The total investment of £283,907 has breathed new life into this charming community pub, giving it a freshly decorated exterior with beautiful new signage, children’s play equipment and a cosy beer garden, and a fully refurbished interior with new furnishings, toilets and a brand-new dining area.

The pub has both Sky and BT Sports showing live sporting events which customers can enjoy in their new surroundings, along with a delicious food menu and a wide range of cask ales and premium lager, as well as an extensive wines and spirits list.
Publicans Diane Burton and Mark have a wealth of experience when it comes to running pubs and are looking forward to their new journey at the helm of The Birch Tree.
Diane said: “We are excited to be working with Punch to bring this beautiful pub back into the heart of the community. The response on Facebook has been overwhelming, 220 likes in 48 hours totally blew us away! So many positive messages of support have got us really excited to take on the new adventure”

Punch’s Managing Director, Andy Spencer, said: “This is a significant investment in a traditional community pub, and we are really pleased with the new look created. We are excited to be working with Diane and Mark who bring a wealth of experience and expertise which will ensure the local community will benefit from a terrific pub for many years”

Punch owns and operates 1,200 pubs across England, Scotland and Wales and has big plans to unlock phenomenal pub possibilities for entrepreneurs and communities across the UK by investing £34 million in its people and pubs in the next year.
