Two days to go and it’s all looking good at the Central.
A grade 2 listed building which has seen better days. A full internal and external repair and decorations scheme here is going to take a lot of patience.
Some set backs on this site caused by persistent flooding over the last 5 years. We now have a new insulated floor slab going in the main bar and hope to get moving forward again next week.
The Shooting lodge is now starting to take shape with some lovely panelling in the bedrooms.
Toilet refurbishment underway at the Black Dog. A temporary toilet has been installed to allow the pub to continue to trade, and now to the Gents. Good progress in just 3 days.
The pub externally is now looking great and the fit out of the shooting lodge will commence in December.
Now fully dressed and trading, the pub looks really smart and we have witnessed some impressive comments from the locals. Over to the shooting lodge next.
Handover complete with just a few minor snags and all ready for the new team to take over in the next few days.
