Around 20 jobs are set to be created as an historic Buxton pub enjoys a new lease of life.

Following a major makeover by award-winning real ale brewery Titanic, The Cheshire Cheese will reopen its doors on October 17.

With a track record of refurbishing and reviving pubs in nearby North Staffordshire, The Cheshire Cheese will be Burslem-based Titanic’s eighth pub to be opened, and the seventh in the past seven years.

Dave Bott, Director of Titanic Brewery, said: “The Cheshire Cheese is our first Derbyshire venture and we are excited to be investing in Buxton.

“This is a pub full of character and we have made sympathetic changes to make it as welcoming as possible to customers.

“We have a strong community ethos and pride ourselves on creating welcoming pubs which sell good local produce and are used by customers of all ages.”

Titanic has built an enviable reputation for the development of thriving community pubs and have experienced strong growth in the face of a global recession.

The High Street venue is now on the look-out for senior kitchen staff.

Mr Bott added: “Wherever we have opened a pub we have endeavoured to use local suppliers for food such as bread, meat and cheese and we will work to help Buxton suppliers in the same way.”

The Cheshire Cheese will be run by Titanic in an agreement with Everards Brewery, who announced the purchase of the premises in June.
