Modern look: the Bowling Green pub before the transformation
A publican has made a joint investment with Ei Publican Partnerships to renovate a Manchester pub, adding six new en-suite letting rooms and revamping the downstairs bar area.

Mark Canny, who has been the licensee of the Bowling Green, Chorlton, for more than 15 years, will reopen the pub on 1 February 2018 after its transformation.

In addition to the letting rooms, the pub’s downstairs area will be refreshed to give it a modern look and feel with a new menu and bar range throughout.

According to Ei Publican Partnerships, Canny has created a "true hub for the local community", with with two football teams, the 3,500-strong Chorlton running group, a cycling group, and a Gaelic football team all calling it home.

Quality across estate

Canny said: "I’m confident these renovations will further enhance the look and feel of the pub. I can’t wait to get them started and enjoy another 15 years with my fantastic staff and loyal customers.

“We are really looking forward to the new letting rooms and believe there’s a gap in the market in Chorlton – a home from home for delivering quality accommodation.”

Ei Publican Partnerships regional manager Paul Hirst added: “Canny is an excellent publican who is testament to the quality existing across our estate. We’re dedicated to supporting and developing the businesses of our publicans and were more than happy to get behind this project and help it happen.

“Investing in our estate and tapping into the full potential of all our pubs is something we’re passionate about achieving. I’m confident with an experienced and knowledgeable operator like Mark in charge, this will be a roaring success and great addition to the local community.”

Canny intends for the bar to be reopened by popular regular Arthur Johnson, who he recently awarded with free beer for life on his 100th birthday.
