The Plungington Hotel is set to reopen tomorrow (Sunday 13 June).


The news comes after a campaign was launched and protests held to save the popular Fulwood pub.

Posting in the Facebook campaign group, Lis Hampshire said: “Hi, my name is Lis and my husband is Paul, just letting everyone know we are working every hour to get this amazing pub open again.

“Please be patient as there is so much to do, we have deliveries coming every day. We are hoping to be open very soon, I will keep you all updated regularly and super excited to meet you all.”

A new Facebook page for The Plungington Hotel has since launched, where the news of the reopening was confirmed.

A comment in response to a question about food being served said: “We are just focused on opening, we are having to find all the furniture and equipment for inside as everything was sold off.”

The Plungington Hotel will be showing Euro 2020 games, including England v Croatia, which kicks off at 2pm tomorrow.
