Refurbishment of the Unicorn’s Head
The Unicorn's head pub is a Grade II listed building constructed in the 17th Century. Following a fire that started on the first floor, the building required substantial restoration and refurbishment works.
The roof timbers and first floor areas were severely fire damaged, while water damage has devastated the bar and restaurant areas on the ground floor.
Due to the pub's listed status, the works consisted of stripping back the walls and applying four coats of lime plaster and replacing the 18th Century oak beams that were too damaged to reuse. The entire roof structure was removed and re-fitted using traditional construction methods and the original brewing chimney was dismantled on rebuilt on new foundations. The bar and restaurant areas were fully refurbished and upgraded to form a new drinking lounge.
