£215,000 Major Refurbishment for Newport Pub

The Maindee on Chepstow Road re-opened on the 9th August following a major investment of £215,000!

The pub is part of the Proper Pubs division at Admiral Taverns and has undergone a complete interior transformation which includes a brand-new bar area, furniture, wooden flooring, soft furnishings, fixtures and fittings throughout. Thanks to the investment, the Maindee boasts a new look and fresh decor giving a warmer, more welcoming feel to appeal to all the local community.

Operator of the Maindee, Emma Lewis, said:
“Opening night was fantastic, it was amazing to see all our customers, old and new, coming to see what the pub has to offer!

“The feedback we received from our community was amazing, and we can’t wait to see them again soon!”

The Maindee will provide a wide range of drinks offers, including cocktails, wine and fizz promotions and hosts both Sky Sports and BT Sports for customers to enjoy. In addition, Emma looks forward to hosting a regular schedule of entertainment such as karaoke, games clubs – including pool and darts tournaments – quiz nights and live music to bring local residents together. Emma is excited to support several community initiatives with her first aim being to raise money to have a lifesaving defibrillator installed on-site.

Matthew Gurney, Operations Director for Proper Pubs, said: “The refurbishment at the Maindee looks fantastic – the team has worked really hard to ensure it is a success for the local community.

On behalf of the Proper Pubs team, we would like to wish our community hero, Emma Lewis and her team, every success for the future in making the Maindee a fantastic hub of the community”.

Proper Pubs is always supporting its communities through an array of events and charity fundraising initiatives, from Easter Egg collections to local foodbank donations and charity walks. Proper Pubs recently installed its 100th defibrillator across its estate through fundraising with the help of its locals.
