A SOLIHULL pub is set for a seven-figure refurbishment to prepare a ‘social haven’ for locals to enjoy.
Dog pub The Boat,in Catherine-de-Barnes, closed on September 14 and is being refreshed ahead of reopening in November.
The Victorian pub stands by the Grand Union Canal on Hampton Lane.
Owners hope to create a new relaxed setting which celebrates the ‘individuality of the pub while incorporating some contemporary twists.’
The new surroundings will breathe life into the well-known pub with décor that will give some warmth and freshness.
The refurbishment will feature entirely new planting, lighting and furniture to reflect the relaxed environment, whilst the dog-friendly pub is also perfect for a pitstop during a walk in the local area.
Ed Dugdill, openings project manager for the Boat, said: “We’re so excited to be bringing a brand new proposition to the people of Solihull – it truly will be a pub with a difference.
“Our uniquely crafted pub will bring people together for all occasions – from brunch right through to Saturday night cocktails, it’s set to provide a charming, characterful social haven for the people of Solihull.
“The new look will take two months to complete, and we look forward to welcoming our neighbours back to the revamped pub when it officially opens on Monday 23 November.”
