A POPULAR Bromsgrove club will be transformed into a family-focused pub and restaurant with the creation of up to 60 jobs.
National pub chain Greene King confirmed it had purchased the Bromsgrove Sports and Social Club, Worcester Road, to turn it into a ‘Hungry Horse’.
The club, previously Bromsgrove Labour Club and the Sports and Social Club, closed its doors last month.
According to Greene King, the new Hungry Horse will offer good food, outstanding value and an inviting atmosphere for families.
The pub and restaurant will feature bright, modern and comfortable décor, including booth style tables fitted with TVs and game consoles and an outside play area.
There will also be Sky Sports, pool, darts, Rock and Roll Bingo, quizzes and more.
Greene King also confirmed it would retain the venue’s large function room previously part of the social club to ensure it remained available for residents and community groups.
A Greene King spokesperson told The Standard: “Hungry Horse has chosen to come to Bromsgrove, to bring our fun, great value family friendly offering to the local community.
“We want to invest in the vibrant local area and offer career opportunities for local people.”
And Bromsgrovians can play their part by suggesting a new name for the pub.
Residents can e-mail their name suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org and the reason for choosing the name by next Sunday (June 24).
A Bromsgrove District Council spokesperson said a planning application was submitted on April 17 and is awaiting consideration.
Subject to approval, the new Hungry Horse is set to open its doors at the end of August.
