Dudley North MP Ian Austin popped in to congratulate the new owners of a popular Dudley pub after its recent refurbishment today.
The Malt Shovel in Tower Street is opening again on Friday after a 12-month upgrade.
The pub will offer a wide selection of beers, lagers, ciders and pub snacks.
Ian Austin said:
“I was delighted to go and meet the team at the Malt Shovel and see the work that’s been done to refurbish the place over the last 12 months.
“The investment is a brilliant boost for Dudley and will provide 12 jobs for the local area.
“I've enjoyed having a drink in the Malt Shovel over the years and I was really pleased to see it looking so good. It looks like it will be a great addition to the town centre".
