BILL Esterson MP has visited the
Pinewoods in Formby, a pub recently acquired and then invested with a ￡230,000
refurbishment. The pub opened, on 16 October 2017, by landlord David McCartan, who
promised to make the pub the cornerstone of the community.
Cask ales from local breweries, a high value menu offering Sunday Roast to
Premium Burgers; local bands and events that bring people together such as live
sports and bingo afternoons, have already been brought in.
New owner Stonegate Pub Company kept on the previous staff team of 16 and
recruited a further 9 to extend the team. In addition David appealed for local
sports teams to step forward for sponsorship by the pub. Formby Seahorses U9's
did just that, and have already been fully kitted out Courtesy of the pub.
Mr Esterson commended the pub on their efforts and contribution to the
community. David said:- "It's been a fantastic 1st few weeks. We've really
hit the ground running and Christmas looks like its going to be fantastic with
the Pinewoods fast becoming every ones local."
