Popular Balsall Pub under new management

Current Leased & Tenanted pub, The White Horse in Balsall Common will transfer across to the Managed house division at Wells & Co.

The destination dining site will close for two weeks in February 2022, reopening on the 15th February, trading until mid-April when the site will then close for a two-month refurbishment, opening back up again in June 2022.

Tor Humpherston, Director of Operations for Managed Houses at Wells & Co. said “It’s an exciting time for us at Wells. We refurbished and opened four houses pre-Christmas and the addition of The White Horse will take us to 26 managed houses in the UK with a further three refurbishments and additions following before the summer trading period. We are excited to be reopening and welcoming in the local community.”

Danielle Coates, Marketing Manager for Wells & Co. added “We’re thrilled to be welcoming The White Horse into our managed house estate. We’ll be reopening the pub just a couple of weeks after initial closure to find our feet. This will allow us to get to know the regulars and local residents as we want to be sure that we’re working towards providing the best offer once we reopen after the refurbishment and working with the current team will allow us to explore this in depth. Expect big things in June when we reopen with a bang.”

Wells & Co. currently has 25 managed houses in the UK and 17 in France. With this latest addition, Wells & Co. is truly on the roadmap to grow its managed estate to 28 sites by the end of 2021; a huge 36% growth in one year.
