Having opened its first pub eight years ago, Hertfields now operate two pubs in Hertfordshire but the reopening of the White Horse marks the companies first Bedfordshire site.
Hertfields founder and White Horse licensee Steve Birch said: “We’re so excited to invest in and reopen the White Horse and give Arlesey a great new pub.
New lease of life
“We are a local pub company, running two other pubs within a 20-minute drive of the White Horse.
“We know the local area and what people want from their local pub, the White Horse is a great fit for us and our growing business.”
The White Horse has been redecorated internally and externally, with utilities fitted to the garden to facilities events and so a new garden bar and children’s play area can be built as well as improvements due to be made to the pub’s car park.
Good pair of hands
Furthermore, the pub now offers a range of keg beers including Birra Moretti and Beavertwon Neck Oil plus around four real ales, a range of gins and other spirits along with a variety of wines, non-alcoholic drinks, and a variety of soft drinks with food set to be introduced.
Greene King pub partners business development manager Andy Turner said: “Steve and the team at Hertfields are both experienced pub operators and local to the area.
“That means the people of Arlesey are going to get a brilliantly run pub by people who understand what they want from a local pub.
“The White Horse is in a good pair of hands and I look forward to working with Steve and the team at Hertfields.”
