A date has been set for the reopening of a pub at the heart of Bromley Cross.

It comes after the previous owner of The Railway Mike Hales made the difficult decision to close the business after four years following the rising energy costs and a 'major fire'.

New landlord Gino Marone previously told The Bolton News that he was ‘very excited’ that the pub is reopening.

He has plans to make some changes to the menu, with the food being offered at 'affordable' prices.

Gino previously said: “I am very excited to reopen the much-loved Railway pub after many people in and around the community were very sad upon its sudden closure.

The Bolton News:

“We’re looking to introduce a different style of menu compared to last time, which will be very affordable to all to come and dine with us.

“We’re also introducing Sky Sports an BT, offering the chance to see all the calendar sporting events.”

In a statement to his customers Gino said: “I know a lot of people have been asking and wondering if it will ever happen, but its official.

“We’re excited to be opening our doors again on November 16, and we’re looking forward to welcoming you back to such a fantastic pub.”

The Bolton News: In the past Gino was also the landlord of The Market Tavern, in Horwich, after successfully running The Pineapple Pub in Astley Bridge.

The Railway Pub closed on December 30 following a fire involving a tumble drier, before temporarily opening the bar for drinks.

No-one was hurt following the incident.

The fire caused electrical damage and around £6-7k worth of food was lost due to the preparation and storage areas being extensively damage.
