The Inn Collection Group has reopened pubs after multimillion-pound revamps, and a community pub has been enhanced by a £176k makeover for summer.

Complete makeover for Grade II bar

Full service 360 brand design agency Harrison has completed a full refurbishment for Young’s & Co’s latest project Hort’s Townhouse, located in the city of Bristol.

Completed in Spring 2023, the transformation turned an outdated sports bar into a premium 1920’s cocktail bar and hotel, bringing the space back to its former glory.

Hospitality group Young’s & Co. challenged the team at Harrison with moving the site upmarket while celebrating the building’s original art deco heritage.

Located on Broad Street in the city centre, the building is Grade II-listed, dating back to the 18th​ century. It has previously been used as a hospitality venue, sales office, warehouse and a pub and cinema.

Community pub receives £176k refurb for summer

The Station Hotel, a local traditional community pub in Filey, North Yorkshire, has been granted a £176,000 investment to improve its beer garden just in time for the summer months.

At the helm are passionate and local licensee duo, Andy Quinn and Victoria Bagley who have been at the pub for over three years together, with Andy having been at the pub for over six years himself.

The investment at the Station Hotel was funded by leading community pub group, Admiral Taverns, who own more than 1,550 pubs across the country.  

The refurbishment has included a complete makeover to its external beer garden, including new furniture, new festoon lighting, as well as a pagoda to ensure use all year round.
