MIDHURST’S historic Bricklayers Arms is to be given a new lease of life thanks to a sympathetic refurbishment and new licensee at the helm.
The pub on Wool Lane has temporarily closed for refurbishment which will take four weeks and the pub is set to re-open in early March.
Pub entrepreneur Graham Staveley is the new licensee at the Greene King pub and he will run it with partner Trish Carr and manager Lucinda Morgan.
“The work we are doing,” he said, “is going to make a big difference. We are looking forward to getting stuck in when we re-open, providing great food and running a pub the whole community will be proud of.”
The pub’s new look has been designed with the original features of the Grade II-listed pub in mind. As well as improvements to the décor and new furnishings, structural changes are being made to make it easier for customers to get around.
