Revere, the Marston’s-owned premium bar and pub operator, is close to securing a new site in Knutsford.

The company is to take on the Grade II listed Old Town Hall, for a new bar/restaurant.

Landlord Monkton Properties has agreed to make a significant investment in repairing the building before Revere completes a fit-out.

Revere currently operates 15 sites and will re-launch the Fire Station in London’s Waterloo Road next month.

Managing director Colin Sadler told M&C that the group’s latest openings The Farmhouse, in Mackworth, Derbyshire and the Elephant at the Market, Newbury, were both performing ahead of expectations.
