The Charlie Horse location will soon be filled again in West Bridgewater. There will be an additional parking lot, a bigger game room — and more.    No dates for reopening but  I am sure that many will be excited. 

The Charlie Horse closed suddenly in August 2016 but according to the Enterprise will be opening up with new owner Mike Barrett.

Mike Barrett, who is no longer part of the family business, is moving in. He owns Barrett’s Alehouse in Bridgewater, North Attleboro and Fall River; Fireside Grille in Middleboro; and Castaways Bar and Grille in Bridgewater.

“The standard for granting a liquor license is showing a public need – west of 24, one liquor establishment in the town of West Bridgewater,” attorney Mark Gildea said. “I think that’s some indication of the need for an alcohol establishment in that area.”

The restaurant will undergo major renovations before it opens. There will be a second entrance added on the Pleasant Street side of the building to accommodate a new parking lot, for which the plan is still being developed.
