A HAMPSHIRE country pub is celebrating the new year with a new management team at the helm.

The Northbrook Arms, in East Stratton, near Micheldever, has been owned by Kate and Adam Shanley since 2019.

They have dedicated the past three months to ongoing improvements.

The completion of a three-year renovation project last year has seen the addition of four self-catering accommodation units, enhancing the pub's offerings alongside its bar, new restaurant and function room.

Kate said: "The Northbrook Arms has been a labour of love for us. We're proud of the transformations and enhancements we've made, particularly through the challenging trading conditions of the last few years, setting the stage for an exciting future for the pub."

With the first two phases of building works completed, Kate and Adam have announced a new leadership team ready to guide the Northbrook Arms forward.

Colin Savory is the new head chef, while Alex Abrey, previously operating London pubs, assumes the role of general manager. They join Lisa Knight, head of housekeeping, who’s been overseeing the self-catering accommodation since 2021.
