These pictures show the results of an impressive six-figure refurbishment of a popular family pub.
The Green Dragon, a Marston’s pub in Welton, will reopen following three weeks of development in a "complete overhaul" of the popular pub.
Pub manager Andy Cane says he hopes to impress regulars with a new locally-oriented food menu and ale selection.
He said the impressive refurbishment has taken place over just three weeks, ready for the pub’s reopening on Monday, July 17.
He said: “It’s a Marstons pub and they’ve invested a lot into this project. It’s a six-figure spend so people so people will really see the difference.
“It’s still taking shape now but it’s looking great. All the rooms are done, the bar area, it’s a complete refurbishment, a complete overhaul of the whole pub really.
“It’s a completely new menu too. We’ve gone lengths to ensure everything is high quality and locally sourced. We’ve got locally sourced ales, all of which come from a 25-mile radius.”
The manager also said that the development will highlight the pubs rich history, particularly referencing Dick Turpin who was arrested in the area.
“It’s been a very premium redevelopment and they’ve really tried to utilise the heritage we have here,” he said.
“Dick Turpin was arrested here so that has been picked out as a theme we wanted to pay homage too, and there’s even a room dedicated to it.”
The refurbishment of the restaurant, bar, kitchen and rooms has taken place in just three weeks and the manager believes the builders have ‘done a really good job’.
He said: “We’ve been shut for about two and a half weeks so it has been a really quick turnaround. We will be reopened on Monday, July 17 and have invited some people to dry runs on the day before that to make sure everything is running like clockwork.
“It’s been tough to get it done in time in only three weeks but they have done a really good job.
“I think people will see the effort that has gone into the pub when they come here. We’ve got a lot of locals whom I’m sure are waiting for us to reopen and try the new beer and food.”
