Sizzling Pub Co. set to open in Darlington

Sizzling Pub Co is set to open its first pub in Darlington in December 2007 ready for Christmas.

The White Horse in Harrowgate Hill, which has been closed for more than a year, has been acquired by Mitchells & Butlers, which is investing a very significant sum in the site, before opening on 11 December.

As a Sizzling Pub Co pub, The White Horse will be totally transformed with modern décor both inside and out creating a warm and welcoming environment, perfect for enjoying a social drink or bite to eat with friends and family at any time of the week.

New manager Stan McKeith, who will be taking over the reins at the pub, explains: "The pub has a prominent place at the heart of the community and despite being closed for such a long time it has remained a real talking point locally.

"Understandably we can all feel a bit cautious when it comes to change, but the new-look White Horse is still very much 'your' local pub but bigger and better with lots of sizzle and we can't wait to get behind the bar to pull a few pints and meet everyone."
