Feilden's Arms, Mellor Brook Set For £400,000 Revamp


A major refurbishment of The Feilden’s Arms in Mellor Brook is planned for 2022, with work scheduled to start once a new licensee has been recruited.

The £400,000 revamp will see Heineken-owned Star Pubs & Bars take the country inn to a new level providing villagers with a fantastic local and the wider area with a drive-to food destination pub with a reputation for great quality food and cask ales.

Located at the heart of the village, the investment will create an open plan drinking dining area and see the conservatory replaced with a larger more stylish version with bi-fold doors leading onto a new terrace. The former disused games room will be turned into additional dining space with doors opening onto the terrace, making it ideal for private functions.

The interior will be redecorated, and furniture replaced giving the pub an upmarket, stylish country look and feel – with greenery hanging from the ceiling, open fires, timber clad bar and flag stone flooring.

The pub’s six ensuite bedrooms are to be redecorated and upgraded with flat screen TVs, new comfortable beds and WiFi and the bathrooms refitted with classic style baths and basins and power showers.

Outside a new wraparound terrace seating is being created and the beer garden extended to double seating for alfresco dining to 64.  New planting and festoon lighting will add to the ambience and a new render and signage smarten the exterior.

Says Chris Newsham, Star Pubs & Bars' area manager: “We want to see The Feilden’s Arms become both a buzzing hub of the village and attract customers and tourists from further afield. The investment will enhance its appeal massively and the new bedrooms meet the needs both of discerning tourists and business users such as visitors to the nearby BAE systems.”

“The Feilden’s Arms offers a great opportunity for someone who wants to be part of the community and run a real village pub in the stunning Ribble Valley with the benefit of three income streams: food, drink and rooms.

“I hope 2022 will be a great year for residents of Mellor Brook and see The Feilden’s Arms realise its potential.”
