The Linley Tavern, situated in the lively town centre of Alsager, had an internal refurbishment in December 2017. The renovation was carried out to broaden the overall appeal of the pub, grow the business within the local and wider community, and to add a brighter look and feel, taking it from a dated community local to a contemporary traditional pub. The Linley Tavern promotes live sporting events and regularly holds entertainment nights, bingo, quiz evenings and community activities. The Linley is now said by locals to be “the best pub is Alsager”.

Trading Accommodation

The Linley has always been the ‘go to’ pub for live sport and entertainment. With this in mind, when Robinsons refurbished the pub, they wanted to enhance this but also modernise the space inside, making it a pub for all to enjoy. A small fixed seating area within the bay window of the pub was removed and the area has now been raised to create a new seating area, which doubles up as a stage for live bands. The area was made more accessible and unrestricted for entertainment so that customers are able to enjoy the pub’s offerings more comfortably.” The bar was replaced with a new modern bar counter and back fitting to enable an improved product display for customers. Throughout the pub, a palette of blues, greys and warm neutrals were used to fashion a relaxed character throughout, along with a new internal lighting scheme to create a warmer ambiance. In order to improve customer flow, a small partition wall was removed and replaced with a screened area to offer some division between the lounge bar area and the pool and darts room. There is also a catering kitchen that is currently used for buffets for functions and the sports teams. There is a large car park and outside seating area with a children’s play area.
