Wetherspoon’s chairman, Tim Martin, is pictured cutting the ribbon with pub manager Heather Delaney (centre), area manager Angie Caulfield (second from right) and staff at The Railway Bell.
The New Barnet pub reopened, following a two-month closure for refurbishment, at the cost of almost £1 million.
New manager Heather hosted a garden party, to celebrate the reopening, with a barbecue, jazz music and face-painting for the youngsters.
The two-month refurbishment work included complete pub redecoration (both inside and out), as well as new furniture and carpets.
A new enlarged conservatory has been built, a new bar installed and an open-plan kitchen area.
The garden has also been completely refurbished, with a decking area added, new garden furniture and a ramp installed, for wheelchair access.
Both the ladies and gents’ toilets have been upgraded and a specially adapted toilet added for those with disabilities.
Heather said: “My team and I are delighted to be welcoming customers back to The Railway Bell and are confident that they will be impressed with the transformation of the building.”
