A Wandsworth Town pub has unveiled its new look after undertaking a major £266,000 revamp.

The Garratt Tavern, formerly GJ’s, in Garratt Lane opens its doors for the time since the end of last year and has been helped in its renovation by national pub company, Punch.

The project involved a new décor, improvements to the bar, new flooring and a full refurbishment of the toilets in addition to a new signage scheme.

There are said to have been a total of ten new jobs created as a result of the investment.

Bruno Martins, pub manager at The Garratt Tavern, said: “This investment has completely transformed the pub. It has created a modern yet warm and welcoming environment without losing any of its charm and character.

“We have also upgraded the large garden area, which I’m sure will prove to be popular with customers.”

Mr Martins says he is ‘keen’ to ensure the pub is actively involved in the community, welcoming families and dog owners to stop by in addition to its sponsoring of the London Orcas’ ladies volleyball team.

Janne Sedgwick, openings manager for Punch, said: “This is the start of a new era at The Garratt Tavern.

“We are proud to be supporting Bruno in this exciting new venture and I’m sure that customers will be delighted with the improvements that have been made as well as the warm welcome on offer.”
