The Strawberry Gardens on Moorside Street in Droylsden, Greater Manchester, re-opened on Thursday 27th April following a major investment of £240,000!

The pub is part of the Proper Pubs division at Admiral Taverns and has undergone a complete transformation with a new look and feel, including a new bar, as well as new furnishings and fixtures. Outside, the garden has had a complete makeover with new flooring, furniture and additional huts to ensure use all year round.

For opening night, customers enjoyed live music from singer, Chris Brooks, whilst the weekend ahead includes a live DJ performance and Karaoke on Saturday.

Operator of the Strawberry Gardens, Joanne Wilson, said: “Opening night was fantastic, it was amazing to see all our customers, old and new, coming to see what the pub has to offer!

“The feedback we received from our community was amazing, and we can’t wait to see them again soon!”

The Strawberry Gardens provides a wide range of drinks offers, including cocktails, wine, and fizz promotions. The pub will also be hosting an annual schedule of events with offers all year round for the local community to enjoy, as well as charity events. Operators, Kristian and Joanne’s first aim is to raise money to have a lifesaving defibrillator installed at the Strawberry Gardens, whilst they are also planning to host a Droylsden Christmas Market.

Matthew Gurney, Operations Director for Proper Pubs, said: “The refurbishment at the Strawberry Gardens looks fantastic – the team have worked really hard to ensure it is a success for the local community.

“On behalf of the Proper Pubs team, we would like to wish our community heroes, Kristian and Joanne, every success for the future in making the Strawberry Gardens a fantastic hub of the community”.

Proper Pubs is always supporting its communities through an array of events and charity fundraising initiatives, from Christmas selection box collections to local foodbank donations. This Easter, Proper Pubs collected over 12,200 Easter Eggs for local charities and recently installed its 85th defibrillator across its estate.
