"We really feel we've identified what the locals in the area want and need after trading and collating their feedback for over a year," said Jack Brown, venue owner.
"The current offering is definitely a hit list of simple pub-type fare. We've done a test run, and it's proving super popular with both locals and visitors already," he said.
The revamped menu can now be washed down with a greater variety of craft beers alongside the core Young Henrys range on tap. Old Growler has partnered with Brad Flowers of distributor Hops & More to ramp up the beer list and assist in hosting craft beer events at the venue.
Old Growler will soon announce a new live entertainment line-up consisting of blues, gypsy jazz, funk and soul bands.
