THE newly transformed Woodlands Edge pub on Broxburn Parade in South Ockendon reopened its doors on Wednesday 22 July following a brief closure for an extensive redevelopment.
A major investment saw the pub go through a complete makeover with a brand new interior including new paintwork, lighting and furniture with comfy dining booths added as well as a new bar.
The Greene King pub has a treat for football fans on the eve of the new season with a new giant Ultra-HD projector screen along with two new TVs. A pool table and dartboard have also been introduced for customers.
The pub marked its reopening with music from singer Jenny Addis and is looking to offer more in the way of live entertainment.
A live music night will be held once monthly and local Essex bands or singers interested in securing a slot should make contact with the pub on 01708 855 245.
Jonathan Tummons, pub manager of the Woodlands Edge, said: “I am really looking forward to showing off the new look Woodlands Edge.
“It has been a complete new revamp and there is an entirely new look to the pub. Bringing in live music is something we are delighted by and we hope to see a number of local acts performing.”
Anthony Hemmerdinger, managing director of Greene King’s locals division, said: “It is always exciting when the doors to a newly transformed pub are once again opened to the public.
“This is a huge change to the Woodlands Edge but one I am sure the local people of South Ockendon will thoroughly enjoy.”
