Fire-ravaged Queens Head to reopen after £2m rebuild

IMG_2128QueensHeadHotelTHE iconic Queens Head at Troutbeck in the Lake District, which was ravaged by fire in 2014, is reopening this April following a £2m investment by Robinsons Brewery.

Nearly 60 fire fighters with 11 engines and specialist equipment tackled the blaze at the 17th Century Grade II-listed property.

At the time, Robinsons pledged that the inn would reopen and nearly three years later a full refurbishment and rebuild of the damaged areas are nearly complete.

With an eclectic mix of ancient Cumbrian and contemporary decor, the brand-new Queens Head will feature a large drinking area and secluded dining areas with focus being around the three original real fireplaces which are being restored.

There are also 10 newly-refurbished en-suite guest bedrooms named after the iconic Lakeland Fells of Great End, Bowfell, Great Gable, Pillar, Helvellyn, Skiddaw, Nethermost, Catstyecam, Scafell Pike and Esk Pike.

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.”
