I was invited to take a sneak peek around interior of The Woodpecker today by landlady Jayne … I have one word: Wow.
It is still The Woodpecker, but spacious, wonderfully laid out, and it is totally amazing.
The interior is modern, contemporary, almost stately.
I not going to share any photographs of the interior … which is still work in progress in some areas … but wow wow wow wow.
When I heard that The Woodpecker was going to get a makeover I was worried, concerned, and thought the makeover would be unsympathetic. I was wrong; the refit is spot on.
Jayne is insistent that the character of her pub will remain the same despite the £700,000 refit and I believe her.
The Woodpecker opens to the public on Tuesday 19th May 2015.
