North-west community pub operator Blind Tiger Inns has announced that it will take over the lease of the Rose & Crown in Chorley, Lancashire.

Blind Tiger will also jointly invest £75,000 with Star Pubs & Bars in order to refurbish the site, which has a reputation for live music, craft ale and screening live sport.

These improvements will include substantial investment in the site’s technology through the installation of six new high-definition screens, an outdoor television, a state-of-the-art sound system, cellar upgrades through the installation of SmartDispense, and new lighting and heating systems to boost year-round trade.

The refurbishment will also see booth seating installed in the main bar area.

Blind Tiger Inns’ managing director Chris Tulloch commented: “In our experience a safe comfortable environment, great entertainment and outstanding quality coupled with good value for money are key to success in community pubs.

“It’s a tried and tested formula for us and is delivering 30% sales growth year on year at our pubs.

“The offer at the Rose & Crown will be in line with this. We’ll be keeping the pub as a traditional local but complementing it with the latest technology and a fantastic new look.

“We’ve built up a strong partnership with Star Pubs & Bars at our sites, and appreciate the flexibility of being able to undertake the work ourselves.”

David Pritchard, Star Pubs & Bars regional operations director for the north-west, added: “Blind Tiger Inns understands and delivers what pub-goers want.

“It has a great track record of growing business at the community locals it operates with us.”
