The pub, which was taken on by Craft Union, features quiz machines, a pool table and multiple television screens inside and out.

Manager Ashley Jefford gave this paper an early look inside before its official opening on Friday, August 23.

He said it was great to be opening a new pub when others seem to be "dropping like flies".

A spokesperson for Craft Union Pub Company said: "We believe that the British pub plays a vital role in the lives of its customers and our philosophy at Craft Union is to put brilliant pubs back at the heart of local communities.
