Star Pubs & Bars plans to spend £650,000 to revive three Derbyshire pubs this year.

The projects include a £320,000 refurbishment of the Bull & Bush, in Mackworth, a £170,000 renovation of the Harrington Arms, in Long Eaton, and a £160,000 investment in the Tupton Tap, at Old Tupton, which reopened this week following an 18-month closure. 

The latter refurbishment was conducted with Ashover Brewery and restored the rundown building into a traditional pub that specialises in local cask ales while serving home-cooked food.

Top Quality

The Bull & Bush investment will transform “a tired pub into a top-quality local” complete with a children’s play area and takeaway, the pubco said.

Plans include repainting and partially cladding the '70s pub to make it an attractive feature of Mackworth town centre as well as a complete makeover of the garden.

The plans also feature the addition of a takeaway with its own entrance selling a full range of fish and chip shop favourites and home-made pizzas.

The efurbishment at the Harrington Arms will give the “nondescript pub” a new lease of life with a focus on cask ales, the introduction of games and food, and a stunning new garden.
