The start of June see’s the opening of JOULE’S BREWERY’S newest Shropshire tap house THE NEW INN, NEWPORT. With its doors being opened to the public on Wednesday 3rd June, the pub acquired by Shropshire based Joule’s Brewery at the end of 2014, will become part of a fine selection of pubs throughout the Shropshire county.

Over the past few months a team of dedicated Joule’s craftsmen have been carefully restoring the ‘The New Inn’ to encapsulating everything that is great about the English pub, with a  contemporary twist.  Coupling freshly prepared home cooked favourites with a high quality bar offering, Joule’s aim to deliver the magic that can be seen throughout the rest of their tap estate across Shropshire, Staffordshire & Cheshire. The New Inn development allows for a full catering kitchen and extension as well as bringing the toilets inside.  The new pub will still be an old fashioned inn at its heart but we will also offer the best in pub classics, simple food that is well done.  Like the brewery in Market Drayton we will source locally and cook from fresh.

Bringing a taste of Joule’s to Newport, the Tap House will be showcasing Joule’s renowned range of fine ales, including Joule’s Pale Ale, Blonde & Slumbering Monk as well as the seasonal collection. The New Inn will also be showcasing Joule’s Craft Lager, “Green Monkey” which will be alongside, the brewery’s first craft seasonal beer “Buffalo” an American Pale Ale.

Trudie Meredith, Marketing Controller for Joule’s commented, ‘we have received an astonishing amount of interest and excitement from locals with lovely memories and stories from each and with the help of social media, we have received lots of old photographs and memorabilia relating the pub and its fascinating journey.  Last month we agreed an exciting sponsorship with local cycle club, Nova Raiders and they have already got plans to make it their regular stop off.’

Darren Wood, Landlord commented, ‘As someone who has lived in the area my entire life, I am naturally delighted to be in a position to bring amazing cask ales and fine food to the center of Newport. Our Head Chef, Carl Stephenson and his team are very much looking forward to providing the towns’ community with a fine range of freshly produced, locally sourced food. The New Inn will create in the region of 10 jobs to local people, this is something that we are all very excited about, and we very much look forward to welcoming you to Joule’s latest venture.

The New Inn has under gone extensive renovations, with an extension which will more than double the size of the 17th century inn, to allow room for a show piece dining room. JOULE’S have worked closely with tillers H.E. Smith from Stoke on Trent to develop a fantastic atmosphere in the extension, complimented by specialist vitreous enamel signage, authentic to the brewery. Joule’s careful refurbishment has been focused on enhancing the cosy snugs and corners that The New Inn was once famous for.

The New Inn will form part of a Tap Estate of 20 beautifully restored Joule’s Houses across the Brewery’s heartland.
