Being closed has given us time to look back where it all started, 6th Nov 2018 the day we received keys to The White Swan, Dronfield.
Starting from scratch, an opportunity not many landlords get, an exciting but overwhelming one. With our eyes set on an opening date of the 23rd Nov there was very little time to turn everything around to make sure the doors would open on time after several years of closure.
The preparation included not only getting the pub ready but it was getting the locals excited for the re-opening. Building the anticipation and ensuring them that we were worth the wait!
The Local support we received before opening was brilliant, from locals and businesses! Part of opening the pub was exploring the local area! one of our favourite finds was Abode on Dronfield bottom. A unique shop we stumbled across looking for unique decor for the pub! We found some amazing little items for the pub and were welcomed by the lovely owners.
Since then Dronfield has been more than supportive of The White Swan and we can't wait reopen safely.
