A Watford pub is set to relaunch under new management for the second time in just over four months.

The Wishing Well in St Albans Road was rebranded the Cother Arms on July 30 after it was taken over by Craft Union Pub Company, part of the UK’s largest pubs operator the Stonegate Group.

However, in October pub landlady Becca Harington left and Jack O’Reilly took over.

The Cother Arms is set to host an official launch weekend featuring live music, street food, DJs and karaoke from December 16 to December 18.

The Friday will be a Christmas event while the Saturday will have a Caribbean theme and attention will turn to the World Cup on Sunday.

Asked why there was new management so soon, a Craft Union spokesperson said: “The previous operator moved on from the pub and we recruited a new one, Jack O’Reilly, in time for Christmas.”

Watford Observer:

New landlord Mr O’Reilly said: “I am so excited to welcome everyone into the pub for our launch weekend.

“The team and I cannot wait to decorate for each theme night and supply lots of exciting entertainment, that we are sure you will all love and get involved with.”
