Rowton Brewery has bought the Wrekin Inn on Wrekin Road in Wellington which is being revived as a live music pub with craft ales.
“It gives us great pleasure to announce that we have bought The Wrekin,” said Steve Preston of the brewery, which also owns The Pheasant in Wellington and the Old Fighting Cocks in Oakengates.
“The pub, which has been closed for two years, will be fully refurbished by ourselves and will be ready to open by Easter, lockdown permitting, creating local jobs.”
Steve said that the Wrekin had long been associated with live music and he would continue this tradition.
He said: “We will be offering a selection of our own Rowton ales, made at our micro brewery at The Pheasant in Market Street, as well as other craft beers, and food.”
