A Sale pub reopened for the first time in over a month after a six-figure investment in the site.

The Kings Ransom, on Britannia Road, reopened on Good Friday after it shut on February 26.

The Sale pub, run by the brewery Greene King, was the subject of a six-figure investment inside and outside with the aim of cementing it as a central community space.

The indoor area has had a major makeover but if anything it is the outdoor area by the side of the Bridgewater Canal which is looking likely to be particularly popular.

Thanks to the work there is a pizza oven for alfresco dining on the up-to-date decking which is heated for it to be used year-round.

There are more than a dozen additional jobs available at The Kings Ransom to cope with all the extra capacity and the extra custom.

Tracy Derbyshire, the general manager of The Kings Ransom said: "The team at The Kings Ransom is excited to be re-establishing ourselves as a pub which is at the heart of the community and we cannot wait to welcome new customers and old customers to showcase our new offering. 

"The revamp is bringing a new lease of life to the pub and we are confident the customers are going to love our facilities for a better experience than ever before."

The Kings Ransom is popular for a programme including music, pub quiz events, and pop bingo events.

It is introducing darts into the mix and it is hoping to set up a darts team in the local community league.

There are screens with Sky Sports and TNT Sports for sports lovers who are able to get 10 per cent off some drinks on matchdays using the Greene King Sport App.
