THE Surrey-based pub company which is taking over The Black Boy pub in Shinfield has spoken of its ‘exciting’ plans for the future.
Barons Pub Company, which currently runs six pubs, will be taking over from the pub’s current landlords Mike Clegg and Claire Hawkins last Sunday.
The pub is now closed for several weeks for a major redevelopment, with
a planned reopening for early March.
A spokesperson for Barons Pub Company, Debbie Eke said: “We pride ourselves on running traditional style family-friendly pubs, serving great food and drink, all day, every day.
“We have a number of awards under our belt including winning Surrey Life Magazine’s Best Family Dining Award 2015 for our pub The Rose & Crown, and we had two of our other pubs as finalists in the same category in 2016.
“All our pubs currently rank highly on TripAdvisor and customers really seem to like what we do.
“Once we take over on January 16, we are planning to close for a few weeks to complete a major refurbishment of the pub. We’ll be working with Concorde BG who have undertaken several other very successful refurbs for us at various of our other sites.
“We have exciting plans for The Black Boy including improving the terrace area, installing an outside bar with plenty of seating and a fire pit and introducing online booking via our website.”
