Castle Rock Brewery adds another
Castle Rock Brewery, the East Midlands based brewer and publican, has taken over the operation of the Embankment Social Club at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. It becomes the 21st pub in its East Midlands and Yorkshire heartland and its 12th in Greater Nottingham.
Colin Wilde, Castle Rock’s managing director, says the newly renamed Embankment will drop its club image and, after a comprehensive refurbishment, become a classic Castle Rock-style pub. “We’ll make sure it’ll be fit for the Meadows area of the city it serves, but have wider appeal to the conurbation and to visitors to the nearby cricket and football grounds. And by retaining all its fascinating features; its oak panelling, stained glass windows and fine décor, we’ll pay homage to its former life as a chemists’ shop and social club for employees of the Boots company.”
The leasehold premises have been acquired by The Beer Consortium Ltd, an EIS (Enterprise Investment Scheme) company set up in late 2014. It is the Beer Consortium’s second acquisition for Castle Rock this year following the purchase of the Horse and Plough pub in Bingham in March.
