A PUB in Abergele has re-opened following a £126,000 makeover.

The Harp pub, on Market Street, received a cash injection from independent pub operator Punch.

New publican Kevin Williams has taken the helm.

Mr Williams said: "We are thrilled to safely welcome customers old and new back to the Harp.

"I am so fond of this pub and its unique spirit and charm and am so happy with the investment, the pub looks fantastic.

"We have exciting plans to bring the community together for Summer Fun Days, Charity Events, BBQ’s and I can’t wait to connect with the local people and hear what they think of their new look pub and garden."

The investment has given the pub a new lease of life, whilst retaining its original character and charm.

Inside, the pub has been given a new and improved layout to maximise space.

Facilities have also been upgraded; Corian topped vanity units with retro mirrors and new patterned tiles have been put in place.

There is also newly upholstered furniture, carpets and the original timber flooring has been restored.

Outside, the pub has been redecorated and has new signage and lighting.

The beer garden has been re-landscaped and has space for 60 customers. It boasts new timber furniture, planters and a new pergola.

Neil Dawson, Punch’s operations director Neil Dawson says, “This is a significant investment by Punch in a unique community pub and we are really happy with the new look created here.

"With our new publican, Kevin at the helm, who brings a wealth of experience in hospitality, we are confident that the Harp will continue to operate at the very heart of the community it serves."
