A HAMPSHIRE pub has reopened under new management following a major refurbishment by a local brewery.

The Upham Pub Group, based near Winchester, has spent the last two months restoring the Wheelwright’s Arms in Havant reopening its doors in time for the last day of June.

The Victorian building has seen its fireplaces and tile floors renovated with a bicycle theme introduced throughout.

Chris Philips, CEO at the Upham Pub Group, said: “We are thrilled with the renovation of The Wheelwright’s Arms and we are proud to now breathe some new life and heart into the stunning Victorian building.

“We are confident the pub will once again be an indelible part of the community fabric, a welcome destination for visitors to the south coast and a wonderful advert for the local food and drink produce that is so readily available in Hampshire.”

The pub is one of 20 to 30 to be opened by the brewery by the end of 2015.
