The New Clock Inn Hungry Horse in Fair Oak threw its doors open this week and kicked off its new offering in style, showcasing the pub’s brand-new look following a six-figure makeover.

The popular venue has been significantly refurbished throughout and boasts an impressive bar area, together with improved viewing facilities to host the latest sporting events.

The revamped venue on Fair Oak Road reopened on Friday 19 July where the celebrations began with live music from Jack Howson. The New Clock Inn Hungry Horse team also welcomed the Mayor of Eastleigh, Councillor Darshan Mann, to try out the new facilities.

The place to be for big games, the New Clock Inn Hungry Horse is equipped with SKY, allowing sports fans to watch their heroes on multiple screens with high quality sound throughout the venue. A separate dining space will also provide a warm and inviting environment, perfect for families.

The bar area has also been enhanced with the addition of contemporary tiling and an improved drinks range, with additional cask ales now available, as well as great existing drink offers such as two bottles for £5 and selected drinks for as little as £2.79 every day. Guests can also enjoy their drinks in the extended beer garden which features additional seating and new outdoor lighting.

John Paul, general manager at the New Clock Inn Hungry Horse, said:

‘We’ve had a fantastic time celebrating the reopening and our Eastleigh neighbours really came out to support us. Our guests are at the heart of what we do, so it was great to be able to mark the reopening with the local community.

‘We’ve already had great feedback on the refurbishment, with many guests hoping for more summer sunshine, so they can enjoy the new extended beer garden.’
