Attracting visitors from across the globe, The Bridge End Hotel situated in the heart of Llangollen, has whisked up a stunning new look for its customers. Overlooking the famous bridge over the white-water rapids of the River Dee, this hotel boasts picturesque views, which is one of the many reasons why it remains such an attraction to so many people. Robinsons Brewery acquired The Bridge End Hotel on the 17th May 1944, and since then, the pub has prospered over the years serving excellent quality beer and increasing its customer base internationally. With its recent growth, the pub received a well-deserved refurbishment to keep up to pace with its heavy demand.
The pub was expertly designed by Robinsons’ in-house expert Design Team, who redesigned the external area of the pub to bring it up-to-date with Robinsons’ corporate branding. Together with the exterior, the interior of the pub also received a substantial renovation.
Gerrand Romano, licensee of The Bridge End Hotel, commented: “Myself and Josie have been licensees of The Bridge End Hotel for sixteen years now, and the recent change has been brilliant for us. Our customers won’t stop expressing how impressed they are with the fresh look! We also had an amazing designer from Robinsons who was extremely attentive and helpful throughout the entire process, it was great.”
Utilising key heritage colours, the pub received a full redecoration in stone green externally. A new snug area was also created; perfect for those who wish to enjoy a quiet pint with their four-legged friend. The existing dining area has been over hauled with new fixed seating and deep buttoned leather, and original artwork has also been installed. Robinsons’ additionally designed a new bar and back bar for the pub, together with a redesigned layout for the reception area and restaurant. With new furniture throughout and a range of innovative feature cluster lighting to create the perfect mood, this pub is sure to delight customers for many years to come.
John Hughes, Business Development Manager for Robinsons Brewery, explains: “The Bridge End Hotel sits in a superb location. The Steam railway starts 100 yards away as does the Llangollen canal, one of the most scenic routs in the UK. Ged and Josie are experienced long term Robinsons licensees who are very well established in the area, and it was very rewarding to be able to give the pub a new lease of life for their customers of today and tomorrow.”
The refurbishment of The Bridge End Hotel will allow for better customer flow due to the separation of the pub’s dinning and drinking areas. The real ales on offer have also been increased, along with an extended beer range, wine range, premium gins and spirits.
