A CHARACTERFUL new pub built in a converted Bromsgrove Post Office is set to open this week.

The former Post Office building on High Street has undergone a new transformation, creating three new full-time jobs and nine part-time roles.

The pub, called The Old Post Office, sees the historic post counters and sorting office buildings reimagined for residents.

The owners, national chain Amber Taverns, confirmed that a plan is set to open the pub on Thursday evening with a few invited local guests.

The pub will officially open to the public on Friday morning.

The iconic Post Office originally closed in January 2016, before relocating to WHSmith 270 metres down the street.

The owners also intend to bring live music to their latest venture, as well as host indoor sporting events, and films screenings.
