A Pentre Broughton pub has officially reopened following a refurbishment costing £165,000.

The Cross Foxes was renovated over the course of three weeks and held a ceremony where a ribbon was cut to reopen the pub.

The Cross Foxes is owned by Admiral Taverns and Proper Pubs and managed by Nina O’Callaghan, and the rest of the Cross Foxes team, including Gareth Jennings (operations manager for Proper Pubs), Mark Knibbs (business development manager for Proper Pubs) and Jan Walker.


Member of Parliament for Clwyd South, Simon Baynes MP, joined Bryn Cefn County Cllr Beverley Parry-Jones to ‘cut the ribbon’ for the newly-refurbished pub recently.

During the visit, Mr Baynes heard about the importance of the pub to the wider community in Pentre Broughton.

Mr Baynes said: “I was honoured and delighted to be asked to open the newly-refurbished Cross Foxes in Pentre Broughton. During my visit, I was struck by their emphasis on supporting the local community and providing top-quality food at a reasonable price.

“It was great to meet the Manager, Nina O’Callaghan, and the rest of the Cross Foxes team, and I was similarly impressed to see the renovations made to the pub interior.

“Their plans for the future, including Proper Pubs’ initiative to supply every community pub with a defibrillator, have my full support and that of the local County Cllr Beverley Parry-Jones. The Cross Foxes is well worth a visit.”
