The Screes Inn prepares to be taken over by award-winning and respected hoteliers
Its good news for Nether Wasdale as popular local pub, The Screes Inn prepares to be taken over by award-winning and respected hoteliers, Mark and Lesley Corr.
Situated in the small village of Nether Wasdale and surrounded by breathtaking landscapes, The Screes Inn has acted as a thirst quenching hotspot for tourists and locals alike for decades.
Having recently bought the quaint business, Mark and Lesley who also own The Strands Inn, hope to have the traditional pub up and running in time for the Easter holidays in just a few weeks.
Lesley said: “We’re so looking forward to opening. We’re going to do it a bit different to the Strands but we do want each pub to complement one another, it’s so exciting.”
The couple, who’s other business, The Strands Inn sits directly opposite The Screes, will be serving punters their wide selection of award-winning real ales which Mark brews himself from their very own micro-brewery which was completed in 2007.
Honing more than ten years of successful business in the hotel industry, The Screes Inn is certainly in capable hands, and Mark and Lesley have exciting plans for the cosy and welcoming pub.
Lesley added: “We’re going to have a different menu to The Strands and will be introducing a few different lagers and ciders to what we serve over the road, so watch this space; it’s going to be brilliant.”
Last year, Mark and Lesley were thrilled when The Strands Inn was awarded by Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) as The Pub of the Year 2016 for Western Cumbria. The couple bought the pub after ‘falling in love with it’ on their very first trip to Nether Wasdale.
