A Worcestershire pub has reopened with an upgraded commercial kitchen after a £140,000 investment from Ei Publican Partnerships helped to breathe new life into it.
The Chequers Inn in Fladbury is now being run by local pub multi-operator and director of Sheldon Inns, Martin Cartwright. He has overseen a refurbishment project worth £180,000 in total.
Ei Group said the site had undergone a “significant transformation” to restore the once prominent site to its former glory.
Ei Publican Partnerships is the leased and tenanted division of the Ei Group, which has a capital investment programme worth around £80m per year.
The Chequers Inn is one of six pub properties in Mr Cartwright’s portfolio with Ei Publican Partnerships. As well as the kitchen installation, it has undergone a number of major interior renovations.
This includes a new and repositioned bar which has created a bright, open plan restaurant space that will allow the pub to offer a fine dining experience.
Mr Cartwright said: “Having only been at the Chequers for a short time, I am hugely excited to have the opportunity to restore life into this pub and revive it as a venue that welcomes both locals and visitors to Fladbury.
“I am confident that following the refurbishment, the Chequers Inn will be a great success and bring all members of the local village together, while offering a range of fantastic food and drink teamed with first class service.”
