A prominent Wiltshire pub reopened after undergoing a “complete makeover” during an extensive six-week refurbishment.

The Northey Arms, which sits on the side of the A4 in Box, temporarily closed its doors on October 8, and reopened nearly two months later on Monday, November 20.

During this time the popular venue, managed by Butcombe Pubs and Inns, a member of the Liberation Group, underwent extensive renovations both internally and externally.

This “much anticipated” project was carried out to restore the pub’s original features and to give it an “elegant modern country house style.”

Jayson Perfect, the managing director of pubs and inns for the Liberation Group said: “The Northey Arms is a beautiful building with a rich history.

“This refurbishment has enhanced its much-loved features and restored those that have been lost over time – it looks incredible inside and out.

“We’ve worked our magic in the kitchen too with the introduction of new menus. 

“We’re sure our guests will enjoy the new look and feel, alongside our fresh new award-winning food and drink offering.”

The bar, snug, and dining areas, and all 13 bedrooms, have been revamped during the works, and wood panels have been added alongside fresh wallpapers and new seating.

Newly introduced breakfast, lunch and supper menus will focus on local produce and “elevated” pub classics.
