Twenty new jobs will be created as a Lancaster pub undergoes a major transformation.
The Nags Head, in Church Street, which closed in May 2012, is having a £450,000 cash injection by new leaseholder Mick Horan in partnership with owners Punch Taverns. It will be used to refurbish the pub, with new décor and facilities to create a bar concept called ‘The Study Room.’
Mick said: “This is a new venture for me and I wanted to work with Punch Taverns and use my background in the industry as a platform to move this site forward and create a new brand where our quirky personality can shine through.
“There will be major work to create a more upmarket venue with stylish furnishings and a premium service, but remaining good value and student-friendly.”
