Lass O’Gowrie pub set to re-open after major refurbishment

After a number of bad press stories, the brewers needed a positive story to launch the new landlord, the portraits made page 3 of the Manchester Evening News.

The much-loved boozer, named Best Pub in Britain, in 2012, closed its doors on Monday after the former-landlord left his post.

The Lass O’Gowrie on Charles Street was voted Best Pub in Britain in 2012 in the Great British Pub Awards.
A Greene King spokesperson owners of the pub said: “We are investing in the Lass O’Gowrie with a major redevelopment to improve this popular ale-house. The pub will remain independently run and the new tenant, a successful local pub operator, will take over shortly.

“The pub will re-open in a few weeks once it has been refurbished, with an even stronger focus on real ale and a wider selection of locally-brewed cask ales alongside our own ales.”

John Rowlinson, the new tenant at the Lass O’Gowrie, said: “The Lass O’Gowrie is an iconic pub and I am very proud to be taking it forward. I am certain that the refurbishment we are planning will firmly cement the Lass’s place in Manchester as a first rate real ale pub.”
