Robinsons Brewery has reopened its pub, Y Bryncynan, in North Wales, following a £1 million investment, continuing the Stockport brewer’s commitment to refurbishing its pubs.
Located in Morfa Nefyn, on the Llyn Peninsula in North Wales popular with tourists, Y Bryncynan had been due to reopen in late March, however this was delayed by restrictions on the hospitality sector due to the coronavirus. In Wales, pubs have only been permitted to reopen outdoors from the 13th July.
Set in picturesque grounds, with some parts of the building understood to be over 200 years old, the family-friendly pub has had a complete transformation. Retail Operations Manager, Ellis Wardle explained:
Y Bryncynan is a great example of a pub that can be enjoyed by everyone no matter what age. We were very keen to ensure that the pub can serve both its local community around Nefyn and Pwllheli, whilst still catering to holiday makers who travel to the area. I know Heidi and the team are raring to go and can’t wait to welcome everyone back. We also have all the necessary COVID secure measures in place to ensure customers feel as safe as possible.”
Internally, the pub has benefited from a new oak bar, stocked with Robinsons’ ales, and has been tastefully re-decorated while retaining all the character of the original building. The design carefully retained the ‘locals’ bar area, providing a quiet corner away from the hustle and bustle of the main serving area.
Retaining the pub’s Welsh charm, stone walls remain an alluring focal point inside the pub, together with traditional wooden beams on the ceiling and cosy log fires for those cooler evenings.
There has been an extension to the dining area allowing for additional covers, and a brand-new patio area with a terrace of private beach huts for guests to take full advantage of.
The external seating area and large garden enjoy spectacular views while featuring a fun children’s play area to keep the little ones entertained making the outside dining and drinking suitable come rain or shine. With the pub being proudly dog-friendly, every member of the family can enjoy a day out in beautiful surroundings.
General Manager at Y Bryncynan, Heidi Bakewell, said:
It’s been a long couple of months, and we’ve been itching to reopen, so you can imagine the relief now that we have finally opened our doors again. The changes to the pub are incredible and we’ve already had many of our locals express how pleased they are with the new look.”
