Bridlington hotel and pub unveils revamped sports bar amid refurbishment

One of the all-time heroes of world darts, ‘Old Stoneface’ himself, John Lowe, MBE, is the main draw of a new season of darts and pool at The Brunswick Hotel which has recently unveiled a refurbished sports bar as part of a full refurbishment.

14 customers will have the chance of a game against John Lowe, with names drawn out of a hat on the night of Thursday, October 12 as part of a free-to-attend event open to the general public.

This popular Bridlington pub and hotel has so far renovated one of the main bars of the pub, with new furniture, decoration and lighting, and an original upstairs dining room now converted into the fully dedicated sports bar. Plans are also in place to renovate the hotel’s ten bedrooms and en-suite facilities.

Its upstairs sports bar, which can be accessed from the inside bars and via a side entrance on Bridge Street, has four professional-standard darts boards and two high quality pool tables in a room that has undergone several weeks’ decoration, also including new wall panelling, new lighting and flooring.

Landlord of The Brunswick Hotel, Bev Wynn, who runs the pub in conjunction with Harrison Leisure, commented: “We are so excited and honoured to have John Lowe here with us to launch our new sports bar and season of pub sports.

“From now on, we expect to have busy nights of casual, league and team darts and pool, all taking place in a modern, new room with some great new beers, hand-pulled real ales, an extensive range of spirits and gins and a new wine list.”

Front of house manager, Bob Palmer, added: “John Lowe will be forever famous in the darts world as being the first player to score a nine-dart 501 finish on TV back in 1984 and is a three-times world champion across three decades.

“We expect this to be very popular, and act as a benchmark for where we want The Brunswick Hotel to be with fun, entertaining and memorable sports and leisure events.”

Michael Harrison, owner of Harrison Leisure, concluded: “We really want to grow the business here in Bridlington as we can’t just let the negative impact of austerity, Covid, Brexit, inflation and energy price rises takeover and prevent us from investing in our futures, the futures of our businesses, the people here and the communities we live in.

“Not investing, not adapting, is only a recipe for disaster and decline, where rising bills, electricity, gas, food and wage inflation prevent us from going about our lives and businesses. That’s why we are investing, for a better future for us all.”
