Punch Bowl Re-opening

The Punch Bowl Inn, Bridgnorth is set to re-open on March the 1st following its extensive restoration, resulting from the tragic floods after Christmas.

Though events have continued in their ‘Ludlow Suite’ function room, the main bar and restaurant have been closed due to the damage caused by the floods, which affected the ceilings, walls and floorings. Owner Adam Giles has been busy since the floods clearing the pub, speaking with insurance adjusters, interior designers, and builders to ensure the pub is returned to its former glory.

“We were devastated when we discovered the damage, which rapidly got worse as waters seeped into the fabric of the building, and regrettably had to close just after New Year. Since then, we have been working all hours to restore the pub and return it to its former glory” Adam comments, adding “We discovered some of the original Oak panelling behind one of the walls, so decided to replace all the damaged walls with new Oak panelling to celebrate the new life of ‘Ye Olde Punch Bowl Inn’ – also restoring the original name. It is the first time we can fully name it an inn, with the accommodation suite, which we were relived to say was not affected”.

Ye Olde Punch Bowl Inn is now re-open with its new look interior, new menus, and even greater value serving 3 courses from £9.95 “We would like to thank the patience and understanding of the people of Bridgnorth, and the support of the local suppliers and the insurance company. We are turning a negative into a positive and not only restoring the Punch Bowl to its former glory, but also returning the value menus, whilst keeping the same award winning carvery” add Adam.
