Fantastic refurbishment planned

A complete refurbishment will transform the Friendly Inn into a great pub with great food. The pub has a traditional interior with a layout of two distinct rooms. We will be carrying out a sympathetic refurbishment which will include, strip, stain and repolish existing timber bar with new front cladding, strip and restain the existing timber floors as well as adding new carpets, re-decoration and new fixtures and fittings.

Externally, we will be giving the pub a ‘face-lift’ by installing attractive signage and lighting to increase the pubs kerb appeal. We will also create a new feature lobby entrance along with refurbishing the existing covered area.
