Ten new jobs were created at Finchley pub, Joiners Arms earlier this month when it re-opened following a £140,000 investment.
The pub, which is owned and operated by the award-winning Stonegate Pub Company held an official re-launch party on Thursday 6th June during which customers were treated to a champagne and canapé reception followed by live entertainment from The Big Chief Band.
Commenting on the launch night General Manager Daniel Niedbalski said, “It was a brilliant night and a fantastic turnout. Our customers were really impressed by the changes at the pub. It’s just so much fresher, and brighter now and has some impressive features such as TV screens in the garden for sports and music which is perfect for the summers months.”
A total refurbishment at the pub has seen it alter the layout to add more dining space, increase the number of cask ale pumps at the bar, introduce a dedicated stage area for live music and transform the beer garden with a makeover. Additional TV screens both inside and in the garden mean sports fans need never miss their favourite events.
“I have always prided myself on making Joiners Arms the friendliest and most welcoming pub in the area and that certainly won’t change”, said Daniel. “With our sophisticated new gold, white and black exterior though and fresh new décor inside we look forward to welcoming new customers from the area to the pub.”
The team at the Joiners Arms have several community-based events planned for the coming weeks in aid of local North London charity The Willow Foundation. The first event is a family fun day, planned for Saturday 22nd June and is already creating a buzz amongst locals. The day which runs from 10am will include face painting, fun indoor and outdoor games, and a special karate workshop run by the Finchley Karate Club for which all over the age of 3 can join in. The following day the pub will be screening cartoons during the lunch period so families can enjoy Sunday lunch with an added treat for the children.
Also new at The Joiners Arms will be weekly live music every Thursday evening feature local bands and artists from 8.30 pm.
The pub has introduced a wide range of great deals throughout the week including a new Tuesday’s Wine Club where all bottles of wine will be available for just £8.95 from 5 pm and 50% off all food all day every Wednesday.
Another exciting change is that the pub is now opening daily for breakfast from 8.00am offering customers an eat-in or takeaway service, as well as a breakfast loyalty discount.
“We have a reputation amongst our customers for delivering fantastic service, great food and a good range of wines and cask beers. With extra hand pumps now installed at the bar we are now offering more ales from national and local brewers such as Doom Bar, Fullers, Adnams as well as a number of microbreweries. As part of this greater focus of our traditional brew we have introduced a loyalty card for our ale loving customers too.”
