The Windmill Lane pub, which was closed for five weeks, was transformed by Robinsons’ award-winning in-house design team with a scheme that looked to re-establish the Dane Bank and emphasise the pub’s traditional fixtures and fittings.
Tony Massey, Business Development Manager for Robinsons said: “The Dane Bank has always been a great pub and an asset to the community. The pub was starting to look tired so it was time to shake things up and give the Dane Bank a new lease of life.”
New feature wallpaper along with carefully selected bric-a-brac including ornate clocks and historical photos perfectly offset the new solid timber flooring. The addition of striking art nouveau lighting installations create a welcoming pub that feels classic and full of character.Stepping into the new Dane Bank, you would be forgiven for thinking you had transported back to the 1930’s. The new bar, which has become an instant focal point, has been redesigned with brand new a new walnut bar top and striking feature columns at the front. The back bar area now stands proudly displaying a range of handpicked spirits and award-winning wines from around the globe.
Externally, the pub’s signage has been replaced with Robinsons’ trademark copper branding and the beer garden has received a new upcycled seating areas; guaranteed to be a hit during the summer months.
The pub will continue to serve a rotating range of Robinsons ales through four new hand pulls along with a new menu comprised of hearty pub food including beer battered fish and chips, freshly made hot sandwiches and a delicious homemade pie of the week.
Robert Lester, Licensee of the Dane Bank said: “The refurbishment looks fantastic, I would even go as far to say that it’s one of the best ones that Robinsons have done so far. Since we opened we’ve had amazing feedback from our customers. It’s really given the community of Dane Bank and Denton a brilliant pub that they can visit. I still get wowed every time I step into the pub. I want to thank everyone at Robinsons for their hard work.”
Tony Massey, Business Development Manager for Robinsons said: “The transformation is outstanding. The designers have managed to not only improve the pub but maintain its traditional pub atmosphere. With a great new menu, two additional hand-pulls added to the bar and a great range of lagers, wines and spirits from around the globe, the Dane Bank has become a firm favourite in Denton.”
