The newly transformed Cricketers pub in Southwick has re-opened its doors to the public and will create new jobs.

A major investment has seen the historic pub undergo a complete makeover with a brand new frontage.

The overhaul includes new furniture, lighting and paving, as well as a repainted exterior.

A collection of cricketing memorabilia has been added inside for The Greene King’s pub association, which also includes an expanded dining area with new fixed seating, carpeting and a revamped kitchen.

The changes to the pub will create at least four new jobs and the pub is actively recruiting for staff.

Andria Smith, pub manager, said: “We are confident our customers will be excited by what we have done. The front of the pub looks fantastic now and we will really see a long-term benefit from that in future summers.”

On Friday, the pub was officially launched in a VIP night with former Brighton footballer Kerry Mayo doing the honours.

Mr Smith added: “Kerry Mayo is a regular customer and with everyone a fan of the team around here, it was great he was there for our VIP night.”

Anthony Hemmerdinger, managing director of Greene King’s locals division, said: “It is always exciting when the doors to a newly transformed pub are once again opened to our customers.

“This is a huge change to the Cricketers, but one I am sure the local people of Southwick will thoroughly enjoy.”
