The New Inn Yealand
Well it’s been a few months and some would say years, but make no mistake, the New Inn is set to win back its past glories and more.
No sooner had Barry Robinson, the Inns new owner completed and his team were straight to work on a refurbishment of the bar, kitchen and dining rooms. Barry explains, ‘what was planned as small refurbishment so we could re open quickly, prior to major work next year, has turned out to be considerably more extensive’.
It’s still a little too early to say when the doors will be opened, but clearly we are talking well before the Christmas festivities commence.
Updates will be on the New Inns Facebook, Twitter and website, keep your eyes peeled!
Investors raise in excess of £110,000!
We are delighted to announce that our share sales have exceeded £110,000 in a mere 8 weeks since launching the offer. This is a remarkable achievement in such a short time.
Receiving backing from David Morris MP is important as he has influence in Westminster and has tabled an Early Day Motion which highlights The New Inn.
54% of Yealand's households invest!
The committee would like to thank everyone for supporting our campaign to reopen our community pub and create a village hub.
We now have 163 investors, which is a fantastic achievement for our three villages.
To date, 54% of our fellow investors are from the Yealands and an extra 32% from immediate surrounding areas: Warton, Arnside and Silverdale as well as support from the rest of the UK & globally.
This represents a massive vote of confidence and is an endorsement of the demand for the New Inn to reopen as a pub and community hub.
Introduction to The New Inn Yealand
Dating from the 1680's, the New Inn, Yealand has long been a central pillar of the villages of Yealand Conyers, Yealand Redmayne, and Yealand Storrs.
In more recent times, the pub was owned by the local brewers, Hartleys, with Colonel Hartley living just across the road. His method of checking the local families, who ran the pub, were doing a good job, was to taste a half of XB every day.
The pub was the star attraction in the local area, attracting visitors from all over the area, including Lancashire, the Lakes & Yorkshire.
