A Robinsons pub in Pickmere, Cheshire is currently closed for a period of a few months so significant refurbishments can take place.
The Red Lion on Park Lane is due to have a new conservatory area fitted, according to the Knutsford Guardian, with conservatory blinds potentially an option if the owner is keen to control light coming into the space.
There will also be a new catering kitchen and bar, as well as a freshly landscaped garden. Sarah Rogers, retail manager at Robinsons, hailed the impact of current tenant Darren Sayle.
She said: “We are really excited to be working with Darren, who is an exciting and experienced tenant with us, and started at the pub in October 2011. The Red Lion has been a locals pub I suppose, and unfortunately there has been a lot of change over the past couple of years.”
Before starting work on The Red Lion, Mr Sayle has built up a successful business at The White Lion in Alvanley.
The addition of a conservatory to a drinking establishment is a popular move among landlords wanting to improve the customer experience. For example, Wycombe District Council is currently considering a planning application for this type of structure at The Red Cow in Wooburn Green, reported Bucks Free Press.
RAP Building & Developments applied to add this type of extension as part of plans to turn the place into a gastro-pub, although there is a chance the property could be converted into a residential space.
