A pub in Knowsley has reopened following a £165,000 refurbishment.
Located on the edge of Knowsley Business Park on the East Lancs Road, The Copper Pot now has updated wallpaper, new lighting, seating, and colour palettes. It is also offering a new food menu.
Local ‘hero’, Franny Briggs, was nominated to pull the first pint in the new look pub thanks to his efforts in raising funds for community-based charities in Knowsley and the surrounding areas.
The Copper Pot, owned by national chain Marston’s, has a large beer garden complete with a patio and one children’s play area. The pub is ideally situated for visitors from the nearby business parks and Knowsley Safari Park.
Its new menu includes hand-battered Atlantic cod served with chips and tartare sauce and new additions such as mac & cheese topped with popcorn chicken and classic lagers on draught, cask ales and a variety of cocktails and G&Ts.
The pub also offers a traditional Sunday Roast each week, all served with fluffy mashed potato, roast potatoes, seasonal veggies, home-made Yorkshire pudding, stuffing and gravy.
Michelle Jones, general manager of The Copper Pot, said, “We are so excited to open the doors of The Copper Pot and to show our guests the final result of our refresh.
“We have invested £165,000 into breathing new life into The Copper Pot. Our pub is the perfect location for a pit-stop on the East Lancs Road or an after work drink, and is much loved by its regulars. We can’t wait to welcome everybody back.”
