When the owners of the Growler Brewery needed a cleaning company to provide a builders clean after renovations on their new pub in Sudbury, they looked no further than Gasda.
Owners of Growler Brewery, based in Pentlow on the Suffolk/Essex border, have bought the historic Waggon and Horses pub in Sudbury.
Growler Brewery managing director Rob Flanagan said they were excited to be taking on the Waggon and Horses and bucking the trend. Gasda were on site for two weeks managing the builders clean,
He added: “We feel there’s a lot of passion for the pub locally and people remember it as a once thriving business. It is not an easy trade to be in but I believe that if you run a pub well and give people what they want, then you have a decent chance of it working.
“We will be trying to give people lots of reasons to use the pub and we aim to put it back into the heart of the local community.”
Recently, Growler won CAMRA’s champion speciality beer of Britain award for the third time with its Umbel Magner porter with coriander.
New Waggon and Horses manager Paul Harper said: “In addition to serving a big range of beers, including 30 bottled varieties, we will also be stocking interesting wines and spirits and serving freshly prepared home-cooked meals.
“We aim to retain the essence of what’s already there in terms of the building but to freshen it up and extend it.”
A six-week refurbishment project has just finished to update the building.
Gasda were given the task of performing the builders clean. This involved cleaning every part of the pub, and removing excess cement, paint, plaster and grouting that had found its way onto other areas.
The owners were delighted with the work.
We wish the new owners every success with their new venture.
