The Inn for a Penny is set to be refurbished by owners Greene King and brought under their new Hive Pubs umbrella.

The brewery say Hive pubs are operated by franchisees who have local knowledge and experience of running a pub, bringing their individual know-how to the Hive pub to deliver the best customer experience.

In a statement released last month, Greene King said: “The Inn for a Penny at Carlton is soon to be fully refurbished and brought under the Hive Pubs umbrella.

“Hive Pubs operate at the heart of the local community and offer an excellent drinks range, classic pub food, and a stunning garden, with sports and entertainment at the heart of the offer.

“The full refurbishment will improve the kerb appeal of the pub with all new signage, lighting and planting. Inside, we will zone the pub efficiently, so there is space for pub sports, socialising, dining and a live acts area.

“TV screens will be strategically placed, to ensure the best viewing experience without dominating.

“The pub will be fully redecorated, with new lighting, flooring and bric a brac. The garden will feature a covered pergola, with lose and fixed seating, as well as a children’s play area.”
