Longbridge developers St Modwen have announced that a new pub will open this summer on the Longbridge town centre site.
Suffolk based Greene King brewery will be opening a Hungry Horse branded family pub on the site, creating at least 40 jobs. The pub will boast outdoor seating and a mezzanine floor providing spectacular views of the £2 million, tree-lined Austin Park.
Hungry Horse is joining a line-up of other household names at the town centre including Sainsbury’s, Premier Inn and Beefeater, with more retailers to be revealed shortly. In total there will be 24 shops and restaurants, two new office buildings called Park Point and Seven House, together with extensive parking.
Ken Millbanks, group property director at Greene King, said: “We have chosen Longbridge as it provides us with an excellent location in a new residential, leisure and business community near to a number of other busy retail outlets. We look forward to contributing to the success of Longbridge and are pleased to be supporting the local economy by creating new jobs.”
St. Modwen senior development surveyor Mark Watkins said: “Greene King’s commitment to Longbridge town centre demonstrates its strength as a retail destination. It will offer an enviable mix of high street shops and independent retailers, and we will reveal the identity of the other national and local retailers in the coming weeks.”
