A Rotherhithe pub has re-opened with a fresh new look following a major refurbishment project.
Around £100,000 has been invested in The Brunel on the corner of Brunel Road Swan Road as part of a joint venture between pub company Punch and new publicans Ed Clifton and Lukasz Adamczyk.
Lukasz is no stranger to the hospitality trade having worked in restaurants for the past 15 years. He moved to England from Poland five years ago and during that time has worked in high profile restaurants including Gordon Ramsay’s Pétrus and the Bel and the Dragon, Windsor.
Ed, who worked as a sound engineer in the TV industry prior to taking over at The Brunel, said: “This is an exciting new venture for us. Every time Lukasz and I visit a pub we talk about what we would change and do differently if we were running it and so we decided it was high time to practise what we preach.
“As soon as we saw The Brunel we knew it had great potential. It’s an attractive river-side pub in a great location and this investment has given it a stunning new look. We’re really looking forward to welcoming customers and showing them the improvements that have been made.”
Ed and Lukasz have ambitious plans for The Brunel and will be offering a range of activities from book lovers’ mornings through to chess clubs, comedy nights, quizzes, live music and even English classes.
