The new manager of a Beckenham pub is striving to become the talk of the town this St Patrick’s Day by giving out free food.

Anne Louise Inman took over Beckenham’s Coach and Horses pub in January, and has overseen an £8,000 revamp.

This weekend's St Patrick's Day is the first event under the new management.

This Is Local London:

Anne Louise, from County Tyrone, said: "St. Patrick’s is the perfect day for us to open our doors and welcome those who may not have had chance to come and meet us yet. We instantly fell in love with the Coach and Horses.

"We’re settling well in Beckenham and are really keen to meet more friendly faces from the local community.

"With my Irish heritage and 20 years’ pub management experience, I’m confident we’re in good shape to put on a fantastic St. Patrick’s Day party that everyone can enjoy."

On Sunday the pub's new kitchen will be serving free Irish strew and live Irish music will be played.

The pub has recently launched its first ever food menu which includes breakfast, light bites and main dishes.
