A REVAMPED town centre pub is opening is doors tonight (Thursday), in time for the Diamond Jubilee weekend celebrations.

The Saracens Head Hotel, on Dunmow’s High Street, has undergone a £500,000 makeover after being snapped up by new owners.

Independently-owned pub company Cozy Pubs purchased the establishment last month and has invested a total of £1.75m to return the grade-II listed coaching inn to its former glory.

The company, which has similarly transformed the fortunes of two other watering-holes in the area – The Cricketers Arms in Rickling Green and The Eight Bells in Saffron Walden – has spruced up the bar and restaurant.

And they have refurbished and reopened all 31 en-suite rooms, which includes 27 elegant double and single rooms and three luxury suites.

Tim Doyle, director of Cozy Pubs, said: “We wanted to return the pub and hotel back to the community for their enjoyment – and I think we have achieved that.

“We are having the official opening tonight (June 1) at 7pm and we would like everyone to come and help us celebrate with a glass of champagne.”

The evening starts at 7pm with a complimentary glass of bubbly on arrival before canapés are served.

The restaurant has also been fully refurbished and will be serving fresh, homecooked food from 7am-10pm daily. To reserve a table call 01371 873901.
