Town & City Pub Company, the managed pub operator, has re-opened six sites since March after investing more than £1m on refurbishments. A further five outlets are set to re-open in June and July following a further series of refurbishments, the company has said. The largest single-site investment over the past three months was at Slug & Lettuce in Bournemouth, which re-opened last Friday (17 June) after a £350,000 makeover. It received a new bar area, furniture, flooring, decor lighting and toilets. A new colour scheme of plum, aubergine, purple, gold and sea-green was introduced. Another Slug & Lettuce, in Chichester, West Sussex, re-opened after a more modest refurbishment on 9 May. In the company’s Traditional division, the Fox in Putney, London, re-opened on 26 May as the Fox & Hounds. New additions included giving a more contemporary look to the frontage and bar, and creating a new garden area with an exterior plasma screen. Another pub in the division, the former Hogshead in Letchworth, Hertfordshire, re-opened on 19 May as the Colonnade. Two Yates’s re-opened over the period. A £270,000 investment was given to the outlet in Leigh, Kent, a former Litten Tree, with new lighting, sound system, bar design, new booths and a VIP area. The venue re-opened on 21 April. Yates in Hartlepool was also refurbished and re-opened on 15 June. “Big spend” refurbishments scheduled for the next few week are Yates outlets in Leicester (re-opening 23 June), Chelmsford (6 July) and Walsall (28 July). There will also be re-openings of a former Hogshead in Deansgate, Manchester, on 21 July - it will be re-named the Lost Dene. The Slug & Lettuce in Nottingham will also re-open on 13 July.
