THE Station pub in Colwyn Bay has reopened following conversion into a sports and entertainment bar.

The pub, which is now owned by the Craft Union Pub Company has been closed for refurbishment.

A spokesperson for the company said: “We are very excited to have taken over The Station pub and we’re delighted that the manager, Neil Wolmarans, will continue to work with us at the pub moving forwards.

“The Craft Union Pub Company aims to be the pub of choice for locals to meet up and watch their favourite sports. These pubs are generally smaller with no food offering, but have excellent audio visual equipment, with sports and entertainment being footfall drivers.

“We invested in the pub, and worked with the local conservation officer to ensure renovation work was sensitive to the property and ensures the characteristics of the pub are retained.

“Our philosophy at Craft Union is to put brilliant pubs back at the heart of local communities. We welcome locals back into The Station pub and we are totally committed to retaining its character and atmosphere while adding a new sports and entertainment offer, in line with our belief that the British pub plays a vital role in the lives of its customers.”
