Pub in King’s Lynn gets an upgrade

January 12, 2018 by  

A makeover which took two years to complete has transformed a pub within King’s Lynn.

Lucy and Richard Golding have reopened the old Wenns Pub. Located on the Saturday market place, Goldings will be a delicatessen for families as well as a pub. Promotional drinkware from King’s Lynn can be used within the food and drink sector. The Heritage Lottery Fund has allocated £1 million to enable the regeneration of the district. Golding told Lynn News:

“It’s all about breathing life back into this end of town. King’s Lynn is beautiful, I love living here and looking out at all these beautiful buildings, but now we need to work on building up tourism.”

Golding has great faith in the area’s economic potential. He explained that the resources from the lottery will help independent entrepreneurs to continue to rejuvenate the place. Another pub, the Nip & Growler, has recently opened in the vicinity.

The Goldings already own the Market Bistro. The idea is that the new establishment will have a distinctive offer for its customers. Selling beer and gin will be a priority, while bar snacks may be provided alongside classic pub food. The temptation to go down the gastro-pub route will be resisted. Golding has the feeling that perhaps too many pub owners have forgotten how nice simple food can be.
