A KINGSWINFORD pub has called last orders as it undergoes a major £226,000 transformation, creating 30 new jobs in the process.

The Cross on High Street will become part of the award-winning Flaming Grill brand when it reopens later this month.

Following the refurbishment, which includes a full internal makeover, the pub will have a brand new menu, including dishes cooked on a chargrill and served on sizzling hot skillets.

Karen Hudson, general manager of The Cross, said: “I am really excited to be introducing the Flaming Grill brand to Kingswinford. Our menu has some truly fantastic dishes that are sure to have our guests’ mouths watering as soon as they walk in.

“The investment will refresh the look but the pub will remain a hub to the community - still showing sports with a dedicated bar area for those that just want to relax with a drink or two.”
