We decided to change tack in 2013 bringing a proper British pub to Heswall serving wholesome British food, local ales and quality wines. The pub underwent a sympathetic refurb tweaking the bar and restaurant area with the addition of rustic wooden furniture along with a sympathetic paint job softening the feel of the place as well as adding an interesting collection of art to lift the decor.
Three years passed and it was time to change up the old girl. We soon realised that our food offering had outgrown our kitchen and we needed to move it. If you remember where the old kitchen was (opposite the staircase) then like us, you wont quite be able to believe what the team used to be able to produce out of such a small space.
The goal of the refurb was to open up the whole of the pub and make it more of one space rather than the separate restaurant, bar and reception. With a couple of tweaks here and there along the way, we feel that the pub now has a nice relaxing atmosphere blending the cosy feel of the bar area with the light and airy dining space.
