The project encompassed full refurbishment to the ground floor including both the restaurant and bar areas.
“DV8 Designs was approached to transform the eatery into a contemporary country venue with a rural feel,” said managing director Lee Birchall.
“Paying homage to the original, traditional elements of the pub, we opted for a rustic feel with a 21st Century twist that would appeal to both new and existing clientele with a real focus on capturing a sense of community.
“The Victoria is also a guest house and with this in mind, we created a design with an intimate feel with the use of worn leathers, tartans and textures running throughout the venue to soften the whole aesthetic for a welcoming community vibe.
“Within the restaurant area we opted for softer pastel tones such as cream, olive and pink to soften and brighten up the dining space, creating a relaxed haven for guests to unwind and enjoy.
“In contrast, the bar area boasts richer, darker tones of blues and greens to add an element of cosiness and warmth to the space.
“We are delighted to have worked with the team at The Victoria pub and EI Group plc who trusted our vision, giving us the freedom to use our creativity to produce a truly unique and special venue.”
To maximise interior space, DV8 Designs worked alongside contractors WHB Construction to create a new flow to the pub to guarantee functionality as well as visual design.
Richard Moore, managing director of The Victoria Walshaw, added: “We are incredibly pleased to say that business has been booming here at The Victoria since the refurbishment was completed.
“It has been a real pleasure to work alongside Lee and his team, who were able to take our brief and create something modern yet cosy, in keeping with the building.”
