Robinsons Brewery are delighted to announce that the doors to the Queens Head at Troutbeck, in the Lake District, Cumbria will reopen in April 2017 following a 2 million pound investment.
In 2014, the Queens Head was devastated in a fire that resulted in the popular Inn closing for almost three years whilst a full refurbishment programme and rebuild of the damaged areas took place by Robinsons Brewery.
The Queens Head, nestles on the side of the Lakeland fells overlooking the Troutbeck Valley, four miles from Ambleside and three miles from Windermere. There are unsurpassed views of Garburn Pass, High Street and 111 Bell Ridge. The former 17th century coaching Inn boasts an eclectic mix of ancient Cumbrian and contemporary decor alongside it’s iconic four poster bar.
The brand-new Queens Head will feature a large drinking area with cosy and secluded dining areas, with focus being around the three original real fireplaces which are being lovingly restored. The bar will feature a great range of real ales, craft beers, premium lagers, wines and award-winning spirits with a focus on the Queens Head’s new eye-catching gin range.
Renowned for serving some of the finest food in the area, The Queens Head’s new menu will highlight a mixture of hearty classic pub food created with provenance and served with flair. The menu has been created to include requests from old friends of the pub who have contacted the brewery through Facebook to make sure their favourite dishes are featured.
There are also 10 newly-refurbished en-suite guest bedrooms named after the iconic Lakeland fells of Great End, Bowfell, Great Gable, Pillar, Helvellyn, Skiddaw, Nethermost, Catstyecam, Scafell Pike and Esk Pike, providing the perfect base for guests to Cumbria and, of course, their four legged companions.
William Robinson, Managing Director (Pubs Division) for Robinsons Brewery said: “It’s no easy feat restoring such a historic pub. It was of the utmost importance that we worked closely with the local council to ensure the most authentic restoration of the original building’s fabric. The Queens Head has never been a case of ‘reinventing the wheel’ and it will pick right up where it left off – a cosy, family friendly pub where you can enjoy a pint, a great night’s stay, and a warm, hearty meal. The outpouring of support from local residents and previous customers has been brilliant and we can’t wait to welcome them back to the Queens Head this April.”
