THE RENOVATION of a Stainborough pub has created 30 new jobs.
The Strafford Arms has been closed for six weeks and reopened last Thursday now the makeover is complete.
Fine and Country Inns invested £500,000, redecorating it in a traditional style to reflect the village's charm and character.
A chef has been hired and the pub will now serve contemporary British and French dishes as part of an evening menu, as well as pub classics.
Licensee Gary Hunt, managing director of Fine and Country Inns, is excited about the reopening. He said: "The pub looks fantastic and I can't believe the transformation."
