The Feathers Hotel in Merstham has reopened following a refurbishment, with a new look both inside and out.
An all-year round garden has been created with extra space, foliage, lighting, heating and a feature fire pit.
Inside, the changes include a refurbished function room, renamed “The Officers’ Mess”, a reference to the airmen hosted at the Grade II listed building during the Second World War.
A new drinks menu includes real ale and exclusive gins, while food ranges from traditional pub fare through to chef’s specials such as rack of lamb and quinoa chilli.
Owners Stonegate Pub Company say they have invested £200,000 in the upgrade, which took place over late January / early February.
Dave Freeman, area manager, said they were delighted with the outcome, adding:
“We’ve really been able to improve the interior design to lend the Feathers to socialising, dining or even watching popular terrestrial sport in the function room to make it the classic, warm and inviting village pub that families want to visit.”
Four new local jobs have been created following the refurbishment.
