The Grapes at Goosnargh, Lancashire, has reopened after £71,000 worth of investment from Admiral Taverns.

The 18th​-century pub, which originally opened as a coaching inn, relaunched with a VIP night on 27 June following a wholesale revamp which included the addition of a beer terrace.

The Grapes was one of the very first investments by Inglenook Inns & Taverns, which now operates 50 pubs predominantly in the north of England.

The pub has a reputation for locally sourced food included poultry from Johnson & Swarbrick in Goosnargh and steak from the nearby village of Anderton, Lancashire.

James Waddington, managing director of Inglenook Inns & Taverns commented: “The Grapes at Goosnargh is a well-loved pub at the heart of the village community.

“We’re so pleased with the transformation and that we have retained its traditional and local feel.

“The refurbishment has been a fantastic opportunity to give the interior and exterior a refresh and we are particularly delighted with the pub’s stunning beer terrace which will be the ideal spot for alfresco drinking and dining this Summer.

“We are really looking forward to the opening night and a chance to show off this lovely pub at its very best.”

“The Grapes at Goosnargh looks fantastic and I’m really excited to support the team on the launch night!”
