National pub operator Punch is pouring £550,000 into The Abbey pub in Woodseats, creating a flagship venue and providing 16 new jobs for the local community.
The Chesterfield Road pub is set to reopen on 12th August 2016 with a weekend of celebrations planned, including live entertainment from solo artists.
Not only is the investment going to transform The Abbey into a true community pub, it will also become the first of a number of flagship sites across the UK that will be used as new training centres for Punch publicans and their teams.
The Abbey, which sits on a landmark corner of Chesterfield Road, will be rejuvenated both inside and out following the significant investment from Punch. The first floor function room is also being extended to accommodate meetings and gatherings such as parties, funeral receptions and wedding celebrations. The redecorated function room will also include a new bar, large screen projector and IT and sound equipment.
Outside, the external areas will be enhanced to create a splendid opportunity for both eating and drinking outside. The popular bowling green facilities will also been upgraded to support a community activity that has taken place for generations.
Commenting on the investment, operations director for Punch, Andy Crump said: "Great care has been taken, working with the planning office, to ensure this transformation is tasteful and sympathetic to the heritage of the pub. The Abbey will be a vibrant, characterful and welcoming venue for all customers to enjoy a quality drinks range and an exciting new menu."
General Manager, Wayne Morton, added: "The new-look Abbey will provide the perfect venue for customers looking for a relaxed, community pub environment with quality food and excellent customer service. Our experienced chefs and kitchen team will be producing popular pub classics with a twist and a wide range of quality wines, ales and spirits which will complement the new menu. We plan to have regular live music acts from solo artists and hold outdoor events to appeal to all the family.
"I'm from Sheffield myself and believe that there is a gap in the local market place for a venue like The Abbey and I'm confident that we will be able to broaden its appeal. I'm looking forward to welcoming customers when we reopen on 12th August and would welcome any feedback they might have."
Commenting on behalf of Punch, Dean Barker-Rogers, launch manager, said: "Wayne has a wealth of experience in the hospitality industry having managed a number of pubs, restaurants and hotels. He has some great ideas for placing The Abbey firmly on the local map as the first choice for customers looking for quality food and drink and a warm welcome.
"Bringing the function room back into proper use will be a real bonus for the venue. It will provide an excellent place for local businesses to hold meetings with catering available for a wide variety of gatherings. The attractive outdoor space with its popular bowling club is an unusual and interesting aspect to the pub's facilities too. I'm looking forward to continually supporting Wayne and his team as they develop The Abbey going forward."

A previous application in 2015 was rejected.
