An MP and a councillor sipped cocktails and sampled tasty treats at the opening of a bar.

Ilford South MP Mike Gapes and Clementswood’s Cllr Helen Coomb took a tour of Champs Sports Bar and Grill, Chapel Road, Ilford, last week, after its licensee received a £550,000 investment from pub operator Punch Taverns.

Champs’ Jat Bhardwaj said: “We had a fantastic VIP preview evening. Guests were treated to cocktails and food sampling – all served by our fantastic, new 30-strong team, giving them the opportunity to put their training into practice on real customers!”

“I’m delighted with the bar’s transformation – Champs is a premier destination to watch the very latest sporting action. I’m looking forward to getting to know our customers over the coming weeks and becoming part of the Ilford community.”
