Almond Family Pubs has completed its refurbishment of The Hesketh, one of Cheadle Hulme’s oldest pubs.
The company, which runs five family friendly pubs in the Stockport and Denton areas, acquired the 153-year-old pub in 2006 and refurbished it with a £170,000 commercial loan from HSBC.
The design features worn leather and an earthy colour scheme, inspired by the historical public houses of London. The business now expects to increase its turnover by 30% over the next year and has created 30 new jobs.
“The Hesketh is well-loved by its regulars and has enjoyed ongoing success in the 11 years we have held its reigns,” says James Almond, company director at Almond Family Pubs. “However, it needed a sparkle as some of the once contemporary elements had become dated even though the traditional features had only grown in charm. With the financial backing from HSBC, we are redefining The Hesketh as an exceptional food pub in Cheshire.”
The Hesketh is co-owned by Almond Family Pubs and Star Pubs and Bars.
