Community Pub Reopens Following Transformational £250,000 Refurbishment

The Spinners in Leigh, a local community pub reopened on Thursday 16th November following a combined investment of £250,000 from the UK’s leading community pub company, Admiral Taverns and experienced licensees, Karen and Naomi Baird. The investment has enabled the licensees to breathe a new lease of life into the pub, cementing it as a community pillar.

The pub has undergone a major transformation inside and out. Internally, the pub will feature a new look and feel, including two brand-new bars, flooring and furniture throughout. Outside, the Spinner’s beer garden which seats up to 50 people, has been redeveloped with new festive lighting and furniture.

At the helm of the Spinners, is mother and daughter duo, Karen and Naomi Baird. The family also run the Royal Oak in Boothstown, another pub owned by Admiral Taverns, providing them with impressive knowledge of the surrounding area and community. This combined with their experience in the hospitality industry – which spans to nearly 60 years collectively – gives them the tools and know-how to create a family-friendly social hub for everyone to enjoy.

Naomi Baird, Manager of the Spinners commented: “Opening night was fantastic, it was great to welcome back all the new and old customers – the support we’ve had so far has been amazing. We can’t believe the results of the refurbishment; it looks better than we ever imagined.

“We have exciting plans to ensure the pub thrives within the community and we want to create a social hub that is welcome to everyone, from families and children, to couples. We will also be looking to support the community wherever we can, as well as local causes.”

The pub celebrated the reopening with a weekend packed of entertainment, including live music and drag act performances, as well as plenty of live sports for customers to enjoy. The pub hosts a full sports package of Sky Sports, TNT Sports and Horse Racing shown across its four televisions.

The licensees are proud of their extensive drink’s selection, which features premium lager options, including Madri and Prava, as well as a selection of Bitters, from Worthington to the original Holt’s Bitter. The pub will also be offering a wide range of drinks offers, including shot deals where customers can buy five shots for just £12.

Additionally, Karen and Naomi look forward to hosting an extensive schedule of entertainment including karaoke and live music every Saturday night. In the summer months, the pub will also host events within its beer garden, from family fun days to BBQ’s.

Kelly Kerr, Business Development Manager at Admiral Taverns added: “I’d like to thank Karen and Naomi for all their hard work in bringing the refurbishment to life – the results are truly fantastic. They both have a very clear vision to ensure the pub sits at the heart of the community, offering residents with a traditional community pub that everyone feels welcome at. On behalf of Admiral Taverns, I wish them every success for the future, and I would recommend anyone in the area to pay them a visit.”
