A NEW pub has opened following a restoration.

Fortysevens is officially up and running in Winsford, taking over the building formerly home to Rango’s and more recently, Eve’s.

New owners Lucas Parfitt and Poppy Twist, from Wigan, were full of optimism as doors swung open on March 1.

“We’re really excited to have restored this incredible venue in Winsford,” they said,

“We’re looking to create a venue driven by a great food offering, a large cocktail menu with great wine and spirits, alongside quiz nights, open mics and live music and bands.”

On what else they have up their sleeves, they added: “We’re also planning afternoon teas, and bottomless brunches and we’re offering free function hire too from next month, alongside the continued refurbishment of the beer garden, and function room.”

Fortysevens is located at 7 Delamere Street in Winsford.

Until October 2019, the venue was home to Rango’s, a tex-mex restaurant and bar.

However, manager Damon Horrill said that despite all efforts the business was not profitable.

In 2021 it reopened as Eve’s, a craft beer bar offering Neapolitan-style pizza.

It closed in December the following year.

Since picking up the keys, Lucas and Poppy have been working hard to refurbish the public house, which they say had suffered a lot of damage while closed.

It opened for the first time on Friday (March 1) and was packed to the brim with punters.

Fortysevens has already held its first quiz night and will host live music this weekend courtesy of Sam Lyon and Jake & Tom.
