The Needle & Awl in Rushden is closing for refurbishment

The Needle & Awl in Northampton Road, Rushden, is closing today (Tuesday) so the pub can be given a makeover.

It is due to be closed for several weeks while the work is completed and then it will re-open to customers as a Hungry Horse pub restaurant next month.

A spokesman for Greene King said: “The Needle & Awl will close on Tuesday, May 24, while it undergoes a complete refurbishment.

“We’re looking forward to re-opening and welcoming old and new customers to the pub on Wednesday, June 15.”

Greene King was unable to provide any further details about the refurbishment.

However, a statement on the pub website says: “We’re closing from 24th May for a major refurbishment.

“But don’t worry, we’ll be open again soon and the pub will be better than ever.

“The Needle and Awl will be re-opening as a Hungry Horse pub restaurant, so we’ll have a new menu as well as a great new look.

“Why not head over to the Hungry Horse website now and get a £5 off voucher when you sign up to receive emails.

“If you have a Fayre & Square Reward Card, you won’t be able to use it at the Needle and Awl any more, but see below for other fantastic Fayre & Square pubs nearby.

“We’re sure you’ll love our new look and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.”

The refurbishment comes just 13 months after the pub had a facelift costing £130,000.
