A PUB in Finchampstead has reopened following a £500,000 investment.

The Greyhound pub Longwater Road, Finchampstead can reveal its new look to punters, featuring heated pods, a drinking terrace and more.

The pub has undergone significant renovations to the property and now includes a landscaped garden with three terraced areas, its own village shop and a pergola-covered dining area.

James Lyon Shaw, who now owns the business with Jamie Dobbin, said: "This is the third pub we have taken with Greene King Pub Partners since June 2018 and we’ve again been able to create a wonderful village pub with the Greyhound through this joint investment.
