A LAINDON pub which has undergone a refurbishment worth hundreds of thousands of pounds is set to reveal its new look.

The Four Seasons Hungry Horse, in Victoria Road, is currently closed for a “massive makeover”, which will see its bar and dining areas transformed.

As part of the overhaul, the bar area will have a dedicated sports area, which has been created with the hopes of making the Four Seasons the perfect destination for pub sport.

This new room will incorporate a shuffle-board, interactive darts, pool tables and high quality sound systems from multiple screens to ensure every guest will catch every key moment.

In addition, the pub’s interior will be given a modern re-model, including contemporary tiling while the beer garden will be extended with additional seating.

As a result of the transformation, six new jobs will also be created.

The revamped venue will officially re-open on Wednesday and a launch weekend which will begin on Friday, August 23, will host a series of events to celebrate the opening.

Clair Little, general manager at the Four Seasons Hungry Horse, said: “The Four Seasons Hungry Horse is at the heart of the local community, so we want to provide our guests with even better surroundings to enjoy a great selection of inviting menu options throughout the year.

“We’re really excited to get the refurbishment underway, and look forward to welcoming our Laindon neighbours to the revamped venue when it officially opens on August 21.

“The weekend is set to be big. An evening with live music will kick this off on Friday August 23 and we’d like to invite everyone to come and celebrate with us.”

Councillor Jeff Henry, Conservative from the Laindon Park ward, said: “The pub has been there for an awfully long time, I remember going there 30 years ago when it first opened, so to hear that it’s expanding is fantastic.

“It’s always popular with a wide variety of locals including myself because of it’s community spirit, and anything that brings employment and opportunities for Laindon residents is strongly welcomed by me.

“This will be good for local business- you often hear about the doom and gloom of smaller businesses closing, so this brings confidence back into our local economy and area.”
