THE CROWN TOASTS TO SUCCESS FOLLOWING REFURBISHMENT

Robinsons Brewery, The Crown Walney receives a refurbishment
Robinsons' The Crown in Walney receives renovation

The Crown pub in Walney, Cumbria, are toasting to a successful opening weekend following a substantial joint investment from licensees Mike and Marie Elliott and Robinsons Brewery in Stockport.

The former Hartleys pub, which was purchased by Robinsons in 1982, has been brought up to speed with a design that is complementary to the marine backdrop of Walney Island and the traditional landscape of Barrow-in-Furness.

A palette of light, neutral colours is prevalent throughout with a clear nautical theme being central to the design. Eclectic naval furnishings, including an old wooden lobster trap and a restored ship’s steering wheel, take prominent place at the helm of the pub and creates an instant focal point upon entry.

The furnishings have been replaced and upholstered in a light tartan pattern. The fixtures and lightings have been replaced as a tribute to the region’s iconic steelworks and shipyards during the technological revolution in the 19th century.

Our regulars noticed the connection straight awaysaid Marie. “It was such a nice touch for the brewery to incorporate this into the design as a lot of our drinkers have memories of the shipyards and the steelworks around the area. It’s a great talking point!

The opening weekend saw customers old and new join Mike and Marie celebrate this new chapter in the pub’s evolution.

It was packed,” said Marie, “We had live music from Collie Stewart and it really felt like a great celebration. We couldn’t be happier.

The new menu has also proven to be a hit with the team fulfilling record orders.

We’ve started serving food seven days a week to keep up with the demand!said Marie. “The menu has gone down a treat with our customers and we are already planning lots of different dishes to add to it!

The Crown is now open showing live sports, serving food and pouring perfect pints of award-winning Robinsons’ cask ales such as Dizzy Blonde and Unicorn.
