A popular country pub renowned for its “warm, timeless” atmosphere has reopened following a £920,976 refurb.

The Grouse & Claret in Rowsley, Derbyshire is situated next to the River Derwent on the edge of the Peak District.

Thanks to the investment, customers at the Marston’s pub can now enjoy a new snug with Chesterfield seating, an updated al fresco dining area and eight en-suite guest bedrooms.

The venue also offers a contemporary restaurant menu including British pub classics alongside “items with a modern twist.”

It reopened for business on Monday 21 November.

Jon Burns, general manager of The Grouse & Claret, said: “We are so excited to open the doors of Grouse & Claret in Rowsley and to show our guests the final result of our refresh. We have invested over £920k into breathing new life into Grouse & Claret’s interior and also our guest bedrooms. The pub is much loved by its regulars, and we are so glad to see everybody back again.”
