Hi, I'm Angela. In this blog, we hope to share the highlights of running a Northumberland country inn and introduce you to some of the people we are lucky enough to meet along the way.
We’re really pleased to say the refurbishment of our bar and lounge is almost complete, with our new carpets and furniture in place.
We like to ‘Buy British’ wherever possible and our stunning tartan carpet came from Calderdale Carpets in Dewsbury, who manufactured a bespoke carpet just for us. Although we liked the standard range we saw when we visited the factory we wanted something unique, and their design team did a great job working alongside us and patiently tweaking the colour ranges until we got it exactly right.
For our oak furniture we went to Taylors Classics in Stafford. As well as manufacturing new furniture Taylors renovate reclaimed pieces, tying together the old and the new, and creating just the traditional country pub look we want for the Pheasant.
There was so much choice it took a while to settle on exactly the right collection, but we are really pleased with it and I was really impressed when it was delivered covered in protective blankets and gently unloaded by a team of men who are obviously very proud of the range.
All that remains is to paint the walls but that will have to wait until the end of the busy summer season and we have chance to draw breath!
If you are passing by do drop in for a drink or a meal, and let us know what you think.
