Public house reopens after extensive building project

The Wicket Gate, a pub in the market town of Chester-le-Street, is now reopening following a comprehensive refurbishment project that includes an all new outdoor area for customer use.

The public house based on Font Street, which first opened its doors in 2009, has seen extensive alterations as part of a building project costing £1.65 million. Elements added include a new and re-positioned bar, an expanded kitchen area that benefits from an open-style gantry, along with furniture that has been refurbished and seating that is fixed in place.

A bi-folding window design has been installed at the front of the building, and on the first floor, brand-new customer toilets for both ladies and gentlemen have been fitted.

The highlight of the project is the creation of a roof terrace. The all-weather area is equipped with a canopy for shelter, decorated with plants and features flexible seating for outdoor dining.

Enterprises planning refurbishment projects and homeowners seeking to build house extensions in Knutsford, Chester-le-Street and other towns can rely on skilled architects to create designs and prepare planning applications at a local council level.

Mike Graveson, manager at The Wicket Gate, commented on the project:

“Myself and my team are looking forward to welcoming customers back into The Wicket Gate and we are confident that they will be impressed by the refurbishment of the building and new-look roof terrace.”

The Wicket Gate has also now become part of the Wetherspoon chain, with food served during opening hours in a music-free environment.
