Actor Neil Morrissey is set to re-open a Stoke-On-Trent pub, 15 years after he last graced the small screen as beer-swilling Tony on Men Behaving Badly.

Not put off by a couple of high-profile business failures in the hospitality sector, the beer aficionado is set to open The Plume of Feathers with James Waddington of Inglenook Taverns and Richard Slingsby under the banner MSW Pub Company.

Slinsby, who’s on board to provide business advice, while Waddington oversees operations, told the Publican’s Morning Advertiser’s sister title M&C Report: “This will be the pilot for more so it’s a starting point.”

Remaining cautious to not over promise he said the group will proceed “on a slow basis”, wanting to find the right locations to meet their requirements.

“Neil is pretty well-known in the industry for his brewing so aligning ourselves with James who is a recognised operator is a dream combination.”

The Punch Taverns pub in the village of Barlaston is undergoing £400,000 of refurbishment ahead of its re-opening on 6 March.
