A Wolston pub’s new landlord was joined by the MP to celebrate its recent makeover, made possible thanks to a £136,000 investment.

The Rose and Crown was given a facelift to improve its appearance and create a more attractive first impression for customers with Paula Ballentine taking the helm.

Rugby MP Mark Pawsey was impressed by the Main Street public house’s refurbishments after a visit on March 24.

“It’s fantastic to see this great local pub restored to its rightful place at the heart of the community and I was happy to raise a glass to its future success.

“I hope locals and visitors also enjoy the warm hospitality I received at the Rose and Crown.”

The pub’s owners, Punch Taverns, pumped thousands into the local to give it the facelift.

New flooring, furniture, fixtures and fittings refreshed the interior and the kitchen and toilet facilities have been upgraded.

Outside, the Rose and Crown has been repainted and signage cleaned, the beer garden has been tidied up and a new smoking shelter with heaters and lighting installed.
