A pub that closed following an incident involving around 80 people has reopened its doors with a new look.

The New Inn pub, in the Market Place, Buxton, has reopened with new landlords following a £100,000 refurbishment by owner Frederic Robinson’s brewery.

It will be run by Sam Fraser and Lorraine Orwin, who have successfully run pubs in Stockport for nine years.

Sam said: “Our previous pubs have been live music venues so the New Inn is a bit of a departure for us as the pub will be aimed at cask beer drinkers and ale enthusiasts predominantly. But we will do the occasional live music event. We hope that the new look will attract new customers who are very excited about this next phase for this great pub.”

The police appealed to High Peak Borough Council to revoke the licence of the premises following the public disorder incident in January. Since then the brewery has worked hard to turn it into a cask ale pub, with open fires, classic decoration and oak bars.

Alan Chapman, of Frederic Robinson, said: “We’ve made a significant investment in the New Inn because we believe it has the potential to be a fantastic cask ale pub with an ever–changing range of real ales, craft bottle beers and quality wines.”
