Admiral Taverns has invested £176,000 to improve the beer garden of a pub in East Yorkshire in time for summer.

The Station Hotel, described by the pubco as a local traditional community pub in Filey, is operated by Andy Quinn and Victoria Bagley who have been at the pub for more than three years as a duo while Quinn has been there for over six years.

The refurbishment has been made in time to make the most of the summer season and includes new furniture, festoon lighting, and a pagoda to ensure use all year round. The pub’s beer garden is split into three areas and is able to seat more than 250 people in total. It also has three self-contained hotel rooms. 

Annual schedule of events

Quinn has a wealth of experience in the hospitality industry, having worked in pubs his entire life and has lived in Filey for about 25 years. The pub hosts an annual schedule of events to ensure it sits at the heart of the community, including regular live sport, live music and karaoke every Friday.

Quinn said: “I am over the moon with the refurbishment – it looks amazing and will further cement the pub at the heart of the community.

“The feedback we’ve had so far has been fantastic and we can’t wait for a busy summer ahead. I look forward to seeing our regular customers and hopefully some new faces over the coming months.”

Food offer

The pub also offers food, which includes stone-baked pizzas, mixed grills, burgers, as well as vegan options, such as falafel wraps and nachos.

Admiral Taverns business development manager Andy Longley added: “It’s been amazing to see the results of our investment scheme at the Station Hotel.

“Andy and Victoria are real community heroes and have demonstrated their passion for the pub through their fantastic work within the community, bringing people together. We wish the team every success for the future.”
