The future of one of Gedling’s pubs looks to be in safe hands after it was bought by the UK’s biggest beer brewer.
Star Pubs and Bars, who are the pub division of Heineken UK, has confirmed they have purchased the Gedling Inn, on Main Road.
Before the recently announced sale, the pub belonged to the Flaming Inn chain which specialises in selling flame-grilled food.
It was the previous owners who renamed the pub, changing it from The Chesterfield Arms – or ‘Cheggo’ as it was known to locals – back in 2011.
A spokesperson from Star Pubs and Bars confirmed to Gedling Eye today that they had bought the pub and are “currently looking at plans”.
They said: “We can confirm that Star Pubs & Bars has just bought The Gedling Inn and that we intend to invest in the pub in early 2016.
“It will offer a new drinks range and menu with the view to be the best pub in Gedling, and a pub the community can be proud of. We’re seeking a long term partner to operate the pub with us.”
