Village toasts reopening of its local pub
Dozens of happy punters raised a glass to the reopening of their local pub in a Suffolk village.
Hasketon has been thirsting for the return of the Turk’s Head since it closed in October 2013 – but this week the pub opened its doors to reveal a new look, menu and selection of drinks.
Among the customers was Clement Cole, the oldest resident born in the village, near Woodbridge, who had the privilege of receiving the first pint – a Golden Ale from Bungay’s St Peter’s Brewery, pulled by front of house manager, James foster.
The pub also has a new head chef, Chandramauli Dwivedi, known as Mauli, who arrived from the Black Lion Hotel, in Long Melford.
The pub’s popular pétanque pitch is also making a return to the pub, which is already taking Christmas function bookings and will be serving a festive menu from the beginning of December.
