The Castle

A 'warts & all' account of the transformation of a run-down pub in Bradford-On-Avon into a 'proper' Inn (food pub with rooms). Written by Alex Reilley & Pierre Woodford

Day one & the builders have been busy. The old kithen & 'cellar' are now one room - this will house the new kitchen. There are also now 2 openings between the old ladies toilet & office - the ladies toilet block was a 60's addition & we have reinstated the old exterior door opening & the old window (taken down to the floor). It's amazing how much bigger & lighter it makes the space feel.

The 'new' kitchen

The opening from the old ladies toilet into the old office - this is going to be our snug.

Fantastic blog...really enjoyed reading that.
I'm Nicola's brother Andrew with an obvious interest in the progress you're making but I think the whole of Bradford (and beyond) would be equally impressed with the vision everyone involved seems to have in making a success out of the Castle.
I can't wait to see it for real (in about 4 weeks hopefully) then dream for a few more weeks about ordering a few pints at the old bank counter, quaffing in style and luxury on one of the club chairs (if there's a spare one!)
Keep up the good work and good luck to everyone involved.
Rgs, Andy
