THE Peach Pub Com­pany, which runs The Richard On­slow in Cran­leigh and The Che­quers in Ever­s­ley Cross, has ex­tended its foothold in the area by tak­ing on The Duke of Welling­ton in East Hors­ley.

The in­de­pen­dent, award­win­ning gas­tro pub com­pany, based in Ox­ford­shire, plans to re­fur­bish the Guild­ford Road venue to “cre­ate a re­ally good place for lo­cal peo­ple to en­joy”.

Peach part­ner Jor­dan Marr, who will be manag­ing the pub, said: “We are ex­cited about the Duke.

“We love meet­ing and get­ting to know new peo­ple and be­com­ing part of the com­mu­nity. We are look­ing for­ward to mak­ing it a great gas­tro pub and a place for peo­ple to meet, eat, drink and call their own.

He added: “I’m re­ally pleased to be here and tak­ing on the pub. On a per­sonal level, a favourite thing for me is when we move into a new pub and cre­ate a re­ally good place for lo­cal peo­ple to en­joy, for spe­cial oc­ca­sions as well as for ev­ery day.

He con­tin­ued: “We want to cre­ate a real hub for peo­ple to go to, a fo­cal point for the com­mu­nity as well as sim­ply a place ev­ery­one can come to, any time.

“We’ll look for­ward to wel­com­ing peo­ple when­ever they visit.

“We’ll be serv­ing break­fast, lunch and din­ner here at The Duke of Welling­ton and can’t wait to meet ev­ery­one.”

The Peach Pub Com­pany, which took over from The Star Pub Com­pany, ex­pects to re­open the site with a grand party in mid- Fe­bru­ary.

Jor­dan is also look­ing for new staff to join his team and there are front and back of house roles avail­able.
