Expansion for Popular Village Pub
The couple behind a popular local pub have doubled the size of their dining room to cope with increasing demand.
Due to high demand and increasing popularity, the owners of The Bridge End Inn at Dalston have expanded their restaurant. The new extension, which took 6 weeks to complete, opened at the end of March. It has doubled the size of their dining room allowing the team to accommodate more tables.
Ian and Julie Brown have previously found themselves having to turn away customers on particularly busy weekends, due to such high demand. With the new dining room, the pub can also now cater for large parties and buffets for functions such as weddings, christenings and funerals, to meet the growing demand in Dalston.
Alana Greer, looks after the business’s social media, she said: “We have had such a good response since it has been open. It’s been fully booked every weekend, which we were anyway, but now we have doubled capacity.”
She added: “It was quite dark before with it being such an old building, but it’s so big, light and airy in the restaurant now.”
Since Ian and Julie took over four years ago, the Bridge End Inn has become a popular spot for locals and visitors alike.
Ian said: “The main thing is that we were having to refuse people but now we can accommodate everyone.
“Inside it looks fantastic; I’m really pleased with it and it’s a nice restaurant to be in now.”
The family-orientated village pub boasts a charming beer garden and a play park to keep the little ones occupied. The traditional homemade food, with an Italian twist had received rave reviews from diners. With this in mind, it is little wonder Ian and Julie have had to make more room for their ever increasing customer base.
