New manager promises to bring back community feel to Arnold pub


The Waggon and Horses in Arnold will be under new management from this week.

Jake Simpson took over the free house on Thursday (May 18) and says he will turn the pub around.

He has managed several pubs across Nottinghamshire including Lounge Bar in Beeston and Sir John Warren in Ilkeston

Jake said: “I live and breathe pubs and community environments.”

“I’m bringing back the community feel and want it to be a home away from home.

“I’ll be offering free chip butties at the weekend; they fill my till and I’ll fill their bellies.”

He has been brought in after unsuccessful management and plans to change the pub’s reputation.

Jake also plans for the popular quiz night to return.

He said: “So many pubs are closing and I will not let that happen.

“The upstairs is mine and the downstairs is theirs.”
