Facelift For Historic Cheadle Hulme Pub


With so many local pubs closing it is refreshing to see a much-loved Cheadle Hulme pub has been treated to a complete renovation. The Hesketh, formerly known as Hesketh Tavern, has been sympathetically renovated by the Warrington based firm to house a space that reflects the venue’s 1860s heritage, while remaining traditionally charming, functional and family friendly.
The Hulme Hall Road pub has been enhanced to upgrade key features including its rear entrance and existing bar and carvery.
Managing Director of DV8 Designs Lee Birchall who carried out the renovation said: “Our brief was to retain the pub’s traditional charm, which is a firm favourite amongst friends and families alike. Many local competitors have been modernised and themed, leaving The Hesketh as the only traditional pub in town, so the design plays to this strength as a unique selling point.
Key furnishing elements include wing-back arm chairs and rubbed back painted timbers to form the country pub’s intimate characteristics. In addition to the updated interior, a new pergola has also been installed.
Director of Almond Family Pubs, James Almond said: “The Hesketh is well-loved by its regulars and enjoys ongoing success after 11 years since we have held its reigns. However, it needed a ‘sparkle’ as some of the once contemporary elements had become dated while the traditional features had only grown in charm. This inspired us and the team at DV8 Designs to enhance the existing features and play to the strengths of the historic pub.“
