Cozy Pubs, the fledgling pub company run by individuals who have worked for Peach Pub Company, has secured its third site. The George in Spaldwick, Cambridgeshire, becomes Cozy’s third Punch leasehold - the company already operates the Eight Bells in Saffron Walden and the Cricketers in Rickling Green. Cozy director Leanne Langman, the sister of Peach founder Lee Cash, said there are plans to spend £50,000 to £60,000 refurbishing the pub before re-opening on 12 August. Langman said: “It just needs a bit of freshening up, a bit of love put back into it. It used to have a good reputation for food and we want to get that back.” The company is aiming for a total of five sites. Langman used to run Peach’s The Swan at Salford, near Bedford, which won a string of awards, including Punch Taverns’ Best Customer Service two years running and a “Highly Commended” in the Pubchef Food Excellence Awards in 2009.
