New lease of life for Rotherham pub

New lease of life for Rotherham pub

The Brush and Easel in Flanderwell has reopened following a £340,000 investment.

The pub, which is owned by Punch Taverns and run by Chris Bridges, held a VIP launch party on 4th July, when it was officially reopened by John.

Situated on Fleming Way, the pub has undergone substantial redevelopment and now boasts a new look and fresh décor. It also has new facilities to host entertainment and TV screens have been added to show live sports.

Chris, licensee of the Brush and Easel said that it was important that the pub kept its local identity within the community.

“I believe we have created a great-value, community pub with a welcoming environment for all and that is really paying off with the comments we have received from our customers. They have been impressed with the brighter decor and the extra TVs,” he said.

John, who was given a tour of the pub by Chris and the Punch team at the launch, commented: “I was very pleased to visit the Brush and Easel and to see the transformation at first hand. It is good to see the enthusiasm among those enjoying what the pub has to offer to the local community as a hub for sports and entertainment.

“I wish Chris and the team all the very best in their impressively refurbished premises.”

Punch has around 4,000 leased and tenanted pubs nationwide.
