Local community pub reopens after £110,000 transformation  

Local community pub, The Catash Inn, located in North Cadbury has reopened following a spectacular £110,000 refurbishment. The pub, owned by leading community pub group, Admiral Taverns, is run by passionate licensee duo, Caroline and James Bowen. 

The pub has seen a major transformation, including a brand-new look both inside and out, with new artwork, new furniture, new toilets, new curtains, as well as fresh new signs to welcome residents back into the pub. The pub also hosts a fantastic beer garden, seating up to 50 people.  

Caroline Bowen, Licensee at the Catash Inn, commented: “We are thrilled to be back open, showcasing our new look to the community. I’m so pleased with the result and we’ve already had some great feedback from our locals. We will be hosting a range of events over the coming months, from live music, quiz nights to bingo, so we can’t wait to see as many new and old faces as possible.” 

Licensees, Caroline and James Bowen have a wealth of experience under their belt, with over 45 years of combined experience in the industry. They are always looking to support the local community, making it a priority to ensure all the team is from the local village.   

The traditional community pub serves an excellent food offering, which includes homemade lasagna, steak, fish and chips, Sunday carvery’s, as well as offering vegan and vegetarian options. Traditional beer, cider, ales and a wide variety of gins are just a few of the drinks on offer. 

Phil Warne, Business Development Manager at Admiral Taverns, commented: “Caroline and James are so passionate about the pub, which is demonstrated through their excellent offering. The refurbishment looks amazing and will ensure the pub stays at the heart of the community for years to come. I would recommend anyone in the area to pay the wonderful team a visit and I wish them every success for the future.”  

Throughout the pandemic, Admiral has taken a highly proactive and supportive approach towards its licensees, offering significant rent aid as well as specific reopening support, beer credits, online.
