Cock Horse pub in Lavenham re-opens following major refurbishment
One of Suffolk’s biggest employers has announced its first foray into the pub industry with the acquisition of a well-known business in Lavenham.
Bury St Edmunds-based Atalian Servest spoke of its excitement, as it reopened the Cock Horse to the community at the weekend, following a significant renovation and the recruitment of a number of new guest chefs to support head chef Chris Ince.
The pub, which is located in Church Street, celebrated its return with a special event at the end of last week, to thank everybody involved with the refurbishment, before the official reopening took place on Saturday.
Daniel Dickson, CEO of Atalian Servest, said: “We are delighted to announce the Cock Horse as our first fully-owned pub.
“The village is a destination venue and is ideal for our first venture into the pub industry.
“Our offering will ensure the Cock Horse has something for everyone and become a popular addition to the attraction of Lavenham.
“We want the Cock Horse to become known for good homemade food.
“We have worked very hard on the new design and to break up the pub into areas for those who want to enjoy a comfy dining experience or enjoy the latest sporting events in our bar area,” added Mr Dickson.
