The pub reopened to the public on Thursday of last week following its extensive makeover.

This includes a complete refresh of the pub throughout creating a more modern look and feel, as well as a completely remodelled beer garden with ‘beach huts’.

The pub will offer an extensive range of both food and drink. In terms of food, it will have something for everyone, with a daily menu offering a variety of pub classics curated by the food team at Greene King and paired with tasty deserts. It will also offer a kid’s menu, senior’s menu and Sunday roast.

Speaking about their pub, Alan and Sam Brookes said: “We cannot wait to welcome people into the Orb & Sceptre!

“The pub has been completely transformed and is a truly stunning space both inside and out.

“We want the Orb & Sceptre to be the heart of the community, so we will be working with local sports teams, bands and more to make it the hub for the local area. We are really proud that already we have created 14 local jobs and cannot wait to get the doors open to welcome people back to the pub once more.
