A roadside inter-war pub in a small Cheshire settlement has been highly commended in the Refurbishment category of CAMRA’s highly acclaimed Pub Design Awards, organised by the Campaign for Real Ale.
The Bleeding Wolf in Scholar Green, Cheshire is designed in a distinctive vernacular style, with an impressive, thatched roof and much internal wood panelling and attractive tilework. However, the building was looking a little tired and run down when its owners, Robinson’s brewery of Stockport, embarked on a refurbishment costing in excess of £800k.
Interior features have been carefully conserved, while subtle alterations have been made to the interior plan to fit it for use in the 21st century. The most impressive new feature is an extension providing an attractive new entrance from the car park to the rear.
