Mitchell’s & Butlers (M&B) has reopened three historic London pubs following an “extensive” six-figure renovation project.

The pub’s, which are part of the M&B Castle & Nicholson’s brand, recently welcomed back customers after being remodelled just in time for summer.

First to open was the Bridge House in Little Venice followed by the Swan in Hammersmith, and finally the Lyttelton Arms in Camden.

Situated along the canals of Little Venice, the Bridge House, which offers real ale and is thought to date back to 1848, has benefitted from a new booth seating area, more dining space, and a completely refurbished garden.

A spokesperson for the Bridge House said: “We are delighted to give our wonderful locals a great new pub experience at the Bridge House.

Exciting new features 

“While we’ve got so many exciting new features, we’ve also made sure to keep all the heritage that makes our pub special.”

Meanwhile the Swan, which was built in 1901 as hotel on the site of an old coaching inn, has seen investments made to improve the food offering, which also created new jobs within the local area.

The new updated menu features pub classics such as chicken & ham pie, fish & chips, burgers and Sunday roasts while the drinks menu has also been refreshed to include a wide selection of craft beers, ciders and cocktails.

Lastly, the Lyttelton Arms, which is directly opposite Mornington Crescent tube station, has proved popular with fans of the television show Peaky Blinders as the pub was caught up in the 1920’s racetrack wars, M&B said.

The venue, which is Cask Marque accredited according to WhatPub, was originally re-named in honour of jazz musician and Radio 4’s comedy panel quiz host, Humphrey Lyttelton.

New and improved 

A spokesperson for the pub said: “We are really excited about being the freshest pub on Camden High Street.

“We have gone for a modern, eclectic look in keeping with the local vibe and cannot wait for everyone to come and see the new and improved Lyttelton.

“We have a new, improved line up of entertainment and will be showing all major sporting events.

“Since taking over the pub at the end of December, we have been building to this moment and we are excited to welcome you all back.”
