Robinsons Brewery has announced investments at three popular local Congleton pubs.

Robinsons Brewery has announced investments at three popular local Congleton pubs, enhancing the quality of the pubs and creating new jobs in the area.

The recently reopened Church House, Buglawton (pictured), the Waggon and Horses, Eaton and the recently acquired Swettenham Arms will all benefit from substantial investments.

The Church House, Buglawton, has already benefited from a major refurbishment and reopened on 9 June. The pub has received a sympathetic investment which respects its 1930s style. The alterations include a new bar and an extension to the rear which includes a larger kitchen area to cater for the increase in dining covers. 

The Waggon and Horses will close in July for a five-month refurbishment, benefitting from a large extension to link the bar area around to the extensive beer garden, with a new entrance to the side.  The investment includes a full renovation of the letting bedrooms, and the creation of a new kitchen to the rear of the pub. 

Also extending its kitchen with refurbishments to the trade area is The Swettenham Arms, a 16th century inn. The pub was acquired by Robinsons in August 2021 to expand jts managed pub estate. Work will begin in January 2023.

"Last year, we invested significant amount of capital expenditure across our pub estate," says William Robinson, managing director of Robinsons Brewery (Pub Division). "We are continuing our developments into this year and planning for 2023. Our focus for Congleton in particular centres around developing food opportunities, creating additional jobs and restoring these landmark local pubs.”
