Cheers Ma'am! Refurbished Shrewsbury pub to reopen in time for jubilee celebrations

A Shrewsbury pub will be saying cheers to the jubilee after reaching a deadline to open for the big event.

Owners of the White Horse pub, in Wenlock Road, were determined to mark the occasion with regulars old and new and have confirmed they will reopen on Monday, four days before the official Bank Holiday weekend

Market Drayton-based brewer Joule's has invested in a wholesale refurbishment of the pub that sits close to the Column.

It closed in the middle of February and work has been carried out all over the pub site, but curious drinkers were given a taster of what to expect when the new landlords held an open evening last month.

New stained glass windows have been created by artist Paul Georgiou, outside areas have been given a spruce up and the inside has benefitted from a lick of paint. New woodwork and seating has also been installed.

A Facebook post on the pub's page said: "After years of planning and months of grafting we are finally (almost) ready to fling open the doors and welcome you back!

"We've got a fair few bits lined up next week to celebrate both the jubilee and also our triumphant return to the people of Shrewsbury."

It went onto say the official opening day is Monday, with the public welcome from 5pm, and then bookings are being taken from Tuesday, with a re-launch taster menu which will be followed by a full one the following week.

A disco and funk party will be held next Thursday from 8pm and live music with The Dirty Rockin Scoundrels on Friday.
