KINGSWINFORD pub The Hinksford Arms is set to reopen on Thursday April 25 following a £325,000 refurbishment.

The pub, formerly known as the Old Bush, is situated on Swindon Road and has been closed for the past seven weeks while work has taken place.

Investment has been provided by Kingswinford restaurant owner Brett Holden and pub company Punch Taverns.

As a result, ten new jobs have been created and Mr Holden hopes it will offer something for the whole community.

He also plans to incorporate a convenience store within the pub and introduce a cask ale loyalty card for customers.

South Staffordshire MP Gavin Williamson is set to officially reopen the pub on Wednesday April 24 at 7pm.
