May 23rd 2015 marked our 1-year anniversary since taking over and re-opening the Lake View Hotel, and re-establishing the Fowler connection with the once iconic Hotel. A lot has happened in this time and we thought we would share what is happening in your local pub.
We are committed to providing a new dining experience, and our focus will be on great food, wine and service. Along with this we want to be a valued member of your community and we will announce new projects over the next 6-12 months, which will hopefully be well received by all our neighbours.
Some of you may have noticed we have undertaken our first stages of renovation this year. Our focus was on bringing a bit of the Hotel’s history back for our guests to see, and exposing the beautiful old red bricks we just couldn’t resist! The front room of the old bistro adjacent to the public bar is now home to ‘The Fig & The Fowl’, an exciting new room that provides breakfast & lunch 7 days a week along with other special events to be announced. It also gives the opportunity for private night time dining, and will focus on local produce, wine & coffee.
On Friday nights we run a growing social club raffle in our public bar, with 10% of all tickets sold donated to a local charity; St. Luke’s Youth Specialist Homelessness Service. With social club members also enjoying happy hour drinks from 5pm – 7pm, it’s a great chance to come down and unwind after a long week at work, be in with a chance to win some great prizes and meet some of the Lake View Hotel’s many locals!
