Revamp at historic Keynsham pub

A pub housed in an historic building has unveiled its £150,000 renovation to visitors. Staff at the Brassmill

The Brassmill, in Avon Mill Lane, has been refurbished inside and out, with new signage, seating, colour scheme and more. The building has also been given extra insulation to keep the cold at bay.

The pub has also recruited five extra members of staff to meet the demands of an expected increase in business following the revamp.

Three jobs have been created at front-of-house, with two extra roles in the kitchen.

Landlord Paul Coates said: “We'll have a clean, contemporary look, but it will be a loving and tasteful restoration in keeping with the character of a magnificent old beamed building.

“The olde worlde charm will still prevail, but we’ll also provide the modern comforts and amenities that guests come to expect.

“It’s a best-of-both-worlds approach and my message to the good people of Keynsham and nearby is come and celebrate a fantastic new beginning with us.”

The historic building played a key part in the development of the British brass manufacturing industry.

Abraham Darby set up the first brass mills in Keynsham around 1706.
