Outside, the external areas have been improved to allow outside eating and drinking.

The popular bowling green facilities have also been upgraded.

General manager Wayne Morton said: “The new-look Abbey provides the perfect venue for customers looking for a relaxed, community pub environment.

“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 I believe that there is a gap in the local market place for a venue like The Abbey and I’m hugely confident that we will be able to broaden its appeal.”
