Mark Frankland, general manager at The Stag and Monkey Hungry Horse, said: “We’ve had a fantastic time celebrating the reopening, and our Hartlepool neighbours really came out to support us. Our guests are at the heart of what we do, so it was great to be able to mark the reopening with the local community.

“It was a pleasure to welcome the Mayor of Hartlepool, Councillor Brenda Loynes to enjoy the new offering too – they really helped to kick off the festivities. We’ve already had great feedback on the revamped bar and the sports viewing areas, with many guests planning their next visit around the upcoming matches.

“The team and I can’t wait to welcome new and returning visitors to The Stag and Monkey Hungry Horse very soon!”
