A prominent Derby pub which closed to allow it to undergo a six-figure refurbishment has reopened for business.
Last month, The Paddock, in Mansfield Road, Breadsall Hilltop, which is owned by pub company and brewer Greene King, shut its doors for an extensive makeover to improve its interior and its food-and-drink offerings.
Now, the pub, which trades under the Hungry Horse brand, is back open with a fresh new look – and six extra staff.
The bar area has undergone a complete revamp, with the addition of “contemporary tiling and a modern finish”. The sports viewing has also been enhanced with high-quality sound systems and multiple screens throughout.
Meanwhile, the beer garden has also been extended with additional seating and new outdoor lighting.
And The Paddock’s drinks range has also been improved, with additional cask ales now available at the bar, as well as drinks deals like two bottles for £5 and prosecco for £9.99 over the weekend.
It also offers a range of value food and drinks deals, including two-for-one burgers on Mondays, curry and a drink for £5 on Wednesdays and add a drink to any burger for £1 Monday to Friday.
Adelle Poulter, general manager at The Paddock
The new-look venue was officially reopened by Mayor of Derby, councillor John Whitby, who joined general manager Adelle Poulter to cut the ribbon.
Adelle said: “We had a fantastic opening event and our Breadsall neighbours really came out to support us. Our guests are at the heart of what we do, so it was great to be able to mark the reopening with the local community.
“Councillor Whitby kick-started the festivities and it was a pleasure to have him there to get everyone in the celebratory mood.
“We’ve already had great feedback on the revamped bar and we look forward to welcoming loyal and new guests over the coming months.”
Mr Whitby said: “The Paddock is an important part of the Breadsall community so it is great to see that it’s back open, complete with a brand new look and feel. I look forward to popping in again soon.”
