After nearly two years after closing due to structural problems with the historic building, the Kings Head & Bell on East St. Helens Street is due to reopen soon.
A large banner is hanging across the front of the pub proudly proclaiming that it will reopen on October 30th.
It looks like there is still a lot of work to do, but there has been a huge effort of activity from builders, plasterers, electricians and other tradesmen over the last month or two. A new extension has been built at the back going into the courtyard.
I am looking forward to the reopening of the pub and wish it’s new owners Foundation Inns the best success.
