The Axe and Compass Wolvey set to open in July!

We are delighted to announce the opening of our ninth restaurant Pesto at the Axe and Compass Wolvey in Warwickshire.

The opening of the newly refurbished the Axe and Compass Wolvey pub will create 30 new jobs for the local area.

The pub has been closed for almost two years, but has had its future secured thanks to a £450,000 joint investment from Pesto Restaurants and Punch Taverns.

The historic building situated in stunning countryside on the outskirts of Wolvey is currently undergoing a refurbishment to transform it into the first Pesto Restaurant in Warwickshire.

Pesto Co-owner Sara Edwards said: “We are incredibly excited about becoming a key part of the local community and introducing the people of Warwickshire to our unique ‘piattini’ dining concept.”

As with the other Pesto in a Pub sites, Pesto at the Axe and Compass will offer original Italian dining combined with open fires, real ales and a relaxed environment in a rural setting.

Sara added: “With the opening of another Pesto in a Pub site these are incredibly exciting times for us as a company.

“We are looking for staff members at all levels to join the Pesto team at the Axe and Compass Wolvey and would encourage anyone interested to contact us.”
