The Barracuda Group has opened its two latest Smith & Jones branded pubs in Fleetwood and Sudbury. The Wyre Light opened in Fleetwood on Wednesday and the Silk Worm, which was named after the town’s former silk industry, was launched the same day in Sudbury. The new openings, which represent a combined investment of £1.6m, are the first in a series of new sites scheduled for August and September, which will include pubs in Dalkeith and Wisbech. The group opened its 10th outlet in Scotland and its third hotel in the UK in Dumfries at the beginning of July.
