The White Hart, Fernhill Heath is preparing for its grand reopening following an impressive investment courtesy of independent pub company Punch Pubs & Co., with new Management Partner Julie Brannon raring to welcome back guests from Tuesday 15th November.

The eagerly anticipated refurbishment has seen Punch go all out to boost the popularity of this characterful community pub. They have injected instant kerb appeal with a chic new external colour scheme and signage. Inside, guests will relax and luxuriate in ample and improved seating and dining areas, complimented perfectly by the fantastic new food and drinks menu. Guests can enjoy the hearty winter warmers on offer that include a sumptuous hand-made steak and ale pie, that’s perfectly paired with one of the local cask ales on offer behind the bar.

With the World Cup and Christmas just around the corner, the pub is well-equipped to provide the community with the perfect spot to enjoy all the excitement and festivities with family and friends. Bookings for Christmas Dining will shortly be available via the pub’s new website and Management Partner Julie has plenty of Charitable Christmas events already on its calendar. The first of which is a community-driven Christmas Fayre in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society on 2nd December where the pub will play host to stalls featuring local businesses and a special ‘memory bus’ offering information on Alzheimer’s support.

Experienced Management Partner Julie, a local herself, knows how integral the White Hart is to the community and is excited to share its new look, she said: “It’s fantastic to be able to reopen the pub, the investment has given the pub a new lease of life. I’ve got a great established team full of familiar faces and I’m already planning a whole host of events to get a real buzz around the place.”

Senior Operations Manager at Punch Pub’s & Co., Sarah Edmunds said, “We’re delighted to have been able to complete such a large investment at this pub, we know it’s an integral part of the community and has been missed! Our Management Partner, Julie is a perfect match for this pub and will ensure its success for many years to come.
