The pubs are: The Mason Arms, Strawberry Bank; The Wheatsheaf, Brigsteer; The Spread Eagle, Sawley; The Tempest, Elslack; The Fountain Inn, Linton; and Wheatley Arms, Ben Rhydding. They have since been joined by the Queens Head, Troutbeck, and the Queens Head, in Hawkshead.
Robinsons have so far renovated the bedrooms at the Masons Arms and Wheatley Arms, with further bedroom improvements planned at the Tempest, which will be followed by the pub and function facilities.
In addition to this, the brewery has invested at the Wheatsheaf, improving kitchen facilities and refurbishing the pub. The Spread Eagle has benefited from an external makeover, ensuring the pub looks picture perfect for the many weddings that have been booked at the pub over the next two years.
William Robinson, managing director at Robinsons Brewery, said: “Despite the impact of the pandemic, the £1m investment thus far is consistent to how we have invested for the long-term in our pubs.
“We knew we acquired some fantastic businesses and have used the recent closure periods to good effect to further improve them and add to our customers experience.”
