Cumbrian Pub Benefits From Stunning Makeover

The Mill Inn, owned by Robinsons Brewery, has undergone an impressive refurbishment marking a new chapter in its history. The refurbishment focused on enhancing the internal space, whilst creating a fresh look for the external drinking area.

The project was primarily an internal renovation, with the replacement of external signage and the addition of new planting to the exterior, creating an inviting atmosphere.

A key objective of the refurbishment was to eliminate the sense of disjointedness within the internal trading space. This was achieved by removing internal walls and introducing new glazed screens, providing unobstructed views throughout the pub. The result is a flowing and welcoming environment, now with increased usage across all areas.Ffeedback from the local community has been very positive.

The kitchen has also been updated with new equipment, including new extraction systems.

The re-design also incorporates a visual journey into the history of the pub, the surrounding area, and local maps. The Mill Inn has embraced a significant amount of bric-a-brac, paying homage to its heritage.

The exterior has received a facelift with updated signage, contributing to the overall refreshed look of The Mill Inn. The decision to replace traditional imagery with historical elements reflects the commitment to preserving the pub’s rich history while embracing a contemporary aesthetic.

Pub Partners Steve and Geri said: “The refurbishment has been really well recieved by our local community. Everyone is impressed with the new look, we’ve been really happy to welcome old customers back as well as greeting new ones!”

The Mill Inn, situated in Mungrisdale just below the iconic Blencathra, one of the largest fells in the North Lakes, is conveniently located not far from the motorway.
