Hull pub, Haworth Arms is to re-open this week following a £215,000 refurbishment by parent company Stonegate Pub Company.
The pub on Beverley Road will swing open its doors on Thursday evening with a launch party to unveil its new image. Regulars and special guests are invited to pop along for complimentary bubbly and canapés to take a sneaky peak from 5pm before doors open to the public from 7pm. The celebratory atmosphere will continue throughout the evening with Haworth Arms’ legendary Quids night as well as spellbinding entertainment from a table magician.
Manager Dan Ferry-Bolder is expecting to see some surprised regulars when they step foot back inside the pub,
“People who know the Haworth Arms of old will see a major difference in the pub. We’ve restored the beautiful old panelling that was hidden behind layers of paint and brought the traditional wooden bar back to life by staining it. The building itself is listed and the idea was to celebrate that with an interior that enhanced its classic features. New carpets, furniture, toilets, signage and soft furnishings in deep, rich warm colours now make the whole place feel very inviting.”
“To accompany the new look, we’re focussing on delivering great food offers including 2 main meals for just £5.95 and a daily special for just £1.99 making it a great value lunchtime stop. Pubs have always been the heart of the community and that’s just what the Haworth Arms intends to be”, he continued.
“And whilst the pub has been closed for its makeover we’ve spent the time wisely re-training the whole team and focussing on our offer so that both the food and service are tip-top.”
In addition to the new traditional menu, the manager Dan has been busy engaging with local brewers so that the pub can offer five hand pulled cask ales. Real ale enthusiasts will like the new loyalty scheme too, as, for every 7th pint purchased the 8th will be free. CAMRA members will also receive a 10% discount on real ale.
The Haworth Arms has always had a reputation for being one of the best places to watch sport in Hull, and now with the new comfortable surroundings, plasmas screens showing sky sports and traditional pub menu the pub just got even better. Wifi will also be available making the pub an ideal morning or lunchtime meeting point for business workers, mums and students alike.
A full weekly package of entertainment including live bands, and dj led nights mean the pub will remain one of the best weekend party destinations by dusk.
