A Stainforth pub that was in need of some TLC has closed its doors for a major overhaul.

One of the area’s best loved hostelries, The New Inn, shut up shop on June 16 for much needed refurbishment and an upgrade.

The pub, in South Bank, was set to close for four weeks to allow the refurbishment work to be carried out.

It will see a substantial investment in fixtures, fittings and redecoration and there will be a major refurbishment resulting in an overall transformation, giving a new look and feel while retaining its traditional warmth and hospitality.

Situated by the Stainforth and Keadby Canal, The pub is receiving a £180,000 cash injection by new leaseholders Inglenook Inns & Taverns in partnership with owners Punch Taverns, a leading pub company in the UK.

Managing director of Inglenook Inns, James Waddington, said he was excited about the refurbishment and looking forward to seeing completion of the major overhaul.

He added it should offer something new to customers and further added: “There will be major work conducted throughout the pub, it will be completely re-decorated, but will maintain its traditional style.

“The plans look fantastic; we will be offering the community something different, with something for everyone. I look forward to seeing the end result.”
