The Appleton Arms

  • First entered:

  • More than £500
  • Their website
  • Features - It's a little haven taking me back to my youth and as a tribute to my (late) dear old pub landlord Dad who taught me how special it was to live in a great British institution during my formative years back in the 1970s and early 1980s!

    You know, a place for family and friends to meet and do what the Brits do best - have a laugh and a joke amongst good company in pleasant surroundings and leave your troubles at the doorstep for that special time you're there.

    Very sadly, in March 2014, my brother, Colin, passed away after a very short illness. He was the brains behind the pub design and every part of it has his signature on it. I miss him so much but he has left me with a fantastic legacy and I hope that I win the competition this year as a fitting memorial to a special brother, husband, Dad, Uncle & cousin.

    Other info

    The pub idea was always there (having grown up in one) but my enthusiasm for collecting and drinking single malt whiskies quickened the pace and the need to get one built. I bought a wooden lodge and embarked on a labour of love with my brother to make a 'proper' pub in a shed. See the photos for the traditional hand-made wooden bar and back bar, 'the snug' area, real pub signage and dart board, wood burning stove and other special features! Why, we've even got the pork scratchings to boot :)
