A HISTORIC Northwich pub which dates back as far as the 1700s has reopened following a £400,000 makeover.

Independent pub operators Punch Pubs & Co have breathed new life into The Slow & Easy, in Manchester Road, Lostock Gralam.

The pub's interior has been restored to it's former glory following a full redesign of the wrap-around bar and restaurant areas.

'Cosy corners' and 'proper' pub games have been introduced to ensure the pub offers something for everyone.

Taking the helm at the new-look pub is management partner Jeanette Brown, who has more than a decade of experience managing pubs in the area.

Jeanette is excited and confident the revamped Slow & Easy, which opened on June 16, will be the perfect pub for all and plans on wasting no time in firmly instilling it within the heart of the community.
