Stonegate invests £325,000 to save Surrey pub

Stonegated Pub Company has spent £325,000 transforming the Regent pub in Walton on Thames, Surrey, seven months after its acquisition from JD Wetherspoon.

The group bought the pub in February 2017 after locals generated a 498-signature petition to save the Regent, which had been on the market since May 2016.

It has now reopened the business after modernising its look, introduced music and focused on sports entertainment.

Matt Lettington, who has managed the pub for the past four years, said: "I love this pub and I love Walton so when Stonegate walked in and said they were prepared to invest such a huge sum of money, completely transforming the look of the pub, I couldn't believe our luck.

"We're proud of our beer reputation, that won't change. But by adding such a modern sports offer, it makes us the best pub on the High street."
