Lakeland Inn gears up for April relaunch with £2m new look

Queens Head

The Queens Head at Troutbeack will reopen its doors this April, following a £2m investment after the property was devastated by fire in 2014.

The property, now with 10 newly-designed bedrooms, has been given an extensive makeover, three years after the popular Inn was damaged by fire that spread throughout the building.

Now areas of The Queens Head have been rebuilt by owners Robinsons Brewery and the 17th century former coaching inn restored to its former glory.

The hotel is located close to Ambleside and Windermere and now boasts an eclectic mix of ancient Cumbrian and contemporary decor alongside its iconic four poster bar.

The new-look Queens Head will also feature a large drinking area with ‘cosy and secluded’ dining areas, with focus on three original fireplaces that have been restored.

The property also has created a new menu, taking requests from old friends of the pub who have contacted the brewery through Facebook to make sure their favourite dishes were featured.

Each of the ten bedrooms has been named after the iconic Lakeland fells.

William Robinson, managing director (Pubs Division) for Robinsons Brewery said: “It’s no easy feat restoring such a historic pub. It was of the utmost importance that we worked closely with the local council to ensure the most authentic restoration of the original building’s fabric. The Queens Head has never been a case of ‘reinventing the wheel’ and it will pick right up where it left off – a cosy, family friendly pub where you can enjoy a pint, a great night’s stay, and a warm, hearty meal. The outpouring of support from local residents and previous customers has been brilliant and we can’t wait to welcome them back to the Queens Head this April.”
