New look for Sutton pub Farmer John’s

Pub open again after £120k revamp

The Farmer John’s pub in Streetly has reopened with a new look following a £120,000 investment. The pub’s revamp has seen the introduction of new wallpaper, stylish lighting, updated seating, and uplifting colour palettes. With an updated bar area and investment in team training, the pub has now officially reopened with a fresh new look. 

Don Welch, Sutton Coldfield’s 31st West Scout Group leader, was chosen as the pub’s community hero to pour the first pint in celebration of the pub’s reopening. He was also joined by the flag bearers from all age ranges of the Scout movement. 

Situated on the edge of Streetly, Farmer John’s has a family-friendly feel, an extensive grassed beer garden and large outdoor playing area. The pub is ideally situated for a drink or meal before or after a walk in the nearby Sutton Park and Barr Beacon Local Nature Reserve.

The Farmer John’s offers a varied menu of pub favourites such as Steak and Ale Pie served with chips, garden peas and gravy and new additions such as Loaded Fries with spicy pulled pork, nacho cheese sauce, BBQ sauce, crispy onions and chopped chives and classic lagers on draught, cask ales and a variety of cocktails and G&Ts. The pub also offers a traditional Sunday Roast each week, all served with fluffy mashed potato, roast potatoes, seasonal veggies, home-made Yorkshire pudding, stuffing and gravy.

Guests can also enjoy a new mid-week offer of a main meal and a drink from £10.75. The dishes vary daily with a burger and a drink available on a Tuesday, curry and a drink on a Wednesday and steak and a drink for £11.95 on a Thursday. 

With over 1,600 pubs and bars across England, Scotland and Wales, Marston’s sites range from their traditional local pubs and family-friendly pubs to sites with a focus on a ‘warm, timeless country pub atmosphere’.

Iain Kaye General Manager of Farmer John’s said, “We are so excited to open the doors of the Otter and to show our guests the final results of our refresh. We have invested over £115k into breathing new life into venue. The pub is much-loved by its regulars and we can’t wait to welcome everybody back.

Farmer John’s reopened on Sunday 30th April.
