Brewery says cheers to relaunch of one of its oldest pubs

Hydes Brewery has relaunched one of the oldest pubs in its estate after a £400,000 refurbishment.

The transformation of The Jolly Thresher in Lymm, part of the Hydes estate for 111 years, includes structural reconfiguration of storage facilities and relocation of toilets to create more open space in the dining area.

Improvements have also been made to the decking area outside.

Sister pub, The Wheatsheaf just 200 yards from The Jolly Thresher, also recently unveiled a £150,000 new look.

These latest refurbishments form part of an ongoing multimillion-pound investment programme in the brewer’s estate over the next two years.

Joshua Watson, who joined Hydes in 2020 before becoming general manager at The Jolly Thresher in December 2021, is currently building a new kitchen and bar team.

Managing director of Hydes Brewery, Adam Mayers said: “The Jolly Thresher is one of our older establishments having been in the Hydes estate since 1911. It’s great to see it open again with an inviting and cosy brand new look and feel, just in time for summer. The outside dining offering is particularly pleasant and welcoming with our well maintained gardens, formerly a bowling green, offering the perfect spot for a memorable family meal. As a much-loved premium dining pub, we’re confident that customers old and new are going to enjoy this newly refurbished destination venue in picturesque Lymm.

“Hydes is committed to all of the pubs across its estate and this latest round of investment is part of an ongoing programme of multiple redesigns and refurbishments we’re going to be rolling out over the next few years. Providing our customers with a first-class experience is front and centre on our list of objectives and with premium dining destination venues such as The Jolly Thresher, we’re confident they’ll want to return again and again.”

Hydes, with its brewery in Media City, Salford, was formed in 1863 and supplies beers to wholesalers, pub companies and other brewers throughout the UK and a pub retailing estate of more than 40 pubs across the North West of England and North Wales.
