A DUNHAM Massey pub has reopened after a £95,000 refurbishment.

The Rope and Anchor, Paddock Lane, which is managed by brewer J.W Lees, was shut to enable a new bar to be fitted and a restaurant area and to creat a more cosy and welcoming atmosphere.

Kieran Rabbit, director of pub operations said “We’re delighted that the investment in the pub and the village has taken place, we believe that by putting the ‘pub back into the Rope & Anchor’ will make it accessible to more guests.

“Equally the investment will create more jobs in the local area which is always a good thing.”
