Pub and brewery chain Greene King to create 60 Rotherham jobs
Pub retailer and brewer, Greene King, has been given approval to develop a new Rotherham pub which will create around 60 new jobs.
Greene King has received planning permission from Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council to build a Hungry Horse pub and restaurant at St Paul’s Developments’ Phoenix Riverside scheme in Rotherham
Greene King has purchased 1.5 acres of land with prime frontage on to Sheffield Road, Templeborough from St Paul’s Developments at its 6 acre, 26,000 sq ft Phoenix Riverside business park which is close to Rotherham Town Centre and Junction 34 of the M1.
Existing occupiers at Phoenix Riverside include St Paul’s Developments, the Royal Mencap Society, Rotherham Council and In-Tend Ltd, leaving just Unit 2 available with office suites from 4,250 sq ft to 8,500 sq ft.
Work has now started on site with the opening of the new family-friendly Hungry Horse pub set for summer 2015.
David Newton, managing director of St Paul’s Developments, said; “We are delighted to welcome the Hungry Horse pub to our headquarter site at Phoenix Riverside.
“The creation of 60 new jobs by a leading national chain will provide a welcome boost to the local Rotherham economy and provide a really valuable amenity for businesses and residents in the area.”
Marc McGuigan, business unit director for Hungry Horse, said: “It is always exciting when we build a new pub, and we are particularly looking forward to being an integral part of this new development, an ideal location for our family-friendly pub.
“Hungry Horse pubs are known for serving a wide choice of food and drink at outstanding prices, in modern and comfortable surroundings.
“It is good news all round for Rotherham with the creation of 60 full and part time local jobs at the pub.”
