British pubs and bars operator Stonegate Group is set to reopen the Queen’s Head in Gosport following a £242,000 ($303,504) investment from Craft Union.  

The establishment, now part of the portfolio of Craft Union, will welcome guests once again on 5 July 2024, following a comprehensive refurbishment.  

The investment has transformed both the interior and exterior, positioning the pub as a community-centric sports venue. 

The Queen’s Head features a new pool table and a dedicated darts board area. Its large beer garden has been enhanced, creating a setting for summer gatherings.  

The pub operator has upgraded the TV and audio facilities to enhance the customer experience. 

The Queen’s Head will host a DJ event every Friday and live music or karaoke on Saturdays.

The pub is expected to become a hub for local pool and darts league matches, with plans to establish a Queen’s Head team.  

A series of weekly events, including a games day, quiz night and Golden Oldies social, are scheduled to foster community engagement. 

Michelle Fraser, who brings experience in managing pubs in Southampton and at the Totton Conservative Club, will become the Queen’s Head’s new operator.

Fraser said: “I am thrilled to be joining the Queen’s Head and getting this fantastic community pub back open. I am committed to the next chapter of the pub’s journey and hope to make it a community hub that all can enjoy.  

“The investment into the pub has created seven new local jobs and the Queen’s Head team and I have plenty of ideas to bring this vision to life, so stay tuned!” 

To mark its grand reopening, the pub will host a celebratory launch event from 12 to 14 July 2024, inviting the community to partake in the festivities.
