AN OLDBURY pub is set to reopen after a £230k revamp.

The White Swan on Church Street will open on Friday September 8 after a complete transformation.

The pub is part of Proper Pubs, a division of Admiral Taverns, which has more than 175 pubs across England, Scotland, and Wales.

Behind the bar is Adam Riese, who has managed the White Swan for three years.

Adam has 23 years of experience in the hospitality industry and is excited to welcome old and new customers to the new-look pub.

With a complete interior redecoration, the pub will feature a brand-new bar, flooring, and furniture throughout.

Outside, the beer garden has new heating and seating to ensure use all year round.

The pub will be celebrating the reopening with an action-packed weekend of live music, karaoke, and a DJ as well as plenty of live sports for customers to enjoy.

Adam said: “The pub looks fantastic, and I can’t believe the transformation.

"I’m really excited to get behind the bar, meet all our customers and support our local community.

"We’ll be starting off by collecting food for a local food bank, and donations to get a defibrillator installed.

“Pubs are the hub of their community, and we can’t wait to be the hub of Oldbury.”

There will be regular weekend entertainment, such as Karaoke and DJ nights, as the pub has a late-night licence that allows it to operate until 2am.

Adam is keen to support local causes, including the local foodbank and will be initially aiming to raise money to install a lifesaving defibrillator at The White Swan.

Matthew Gurney, Operations Director for Proper Pubs, said: “I’m really excited about the opening of the White Swan!

"The team have worked hard on the refurbishment, and we’re just finalising the finishing touches."
