A POPULAR Flintshire pub is set to reopen following the arrival of new tenants who can't wait to get started.

The Cross Foxes in Nannerch, Flintshire, has been taken over by a new family who are looking forward to meeting customers and settling into the village.

Pub manager Bex Gomm and her husband, Antony, have been busy refurbishing the much-loved family pub on Village Road and have now set an opening date.

The Flintshire pub will open to the public on Friday, February 16 - a later date than Bex had anticipated due to a delayed cellar refit.

Food will be served from 6pm with doors opening at 5pm.

Menus will be shared on the pub's Facebook page in the upcoming days along with all other updates and booking information.

Bex said: "We are very much looking forward to opening the doors again and to meet the locals and hopefully some new guests too.

"We have been decorating the dining area and having some essential works completed in both the kitchen and cellar which is why things are taking a little longer than expected but will be worth it all once it’s done!

"We'd like to give a huge thank you to Janet Costidell and Timothy Costidell for a stress free handover and look forward to seeing them relaxing on the other side of the bar very soon."


Former manager Janet added: "Running a rural pub in the current climate is no easy task and we wish Bex and Anthony all the best wishes their venture, and we look forward to being on the ‘right’ side of the bar for a change!"

The building is owned by relatives that are renting it out to Bex and her partner so they can realise their dream of running the pub with their three children by their side.

Despite only moving into the pub during the new year, Nannerch residents have already expressed their excitement on social media and can't wait to support Bex and the family in their new venture.
