Our new pub signs have gone up in time for the opening tomorrow.
They have been hand made locally by Andy Field, who is a real craftsman.
When you are putting signs on an 18th century pub you should be doing something traditional. So our signs are made from marine ply with 8 layers of paint lovingly applied then sanded between each coat. The lettering is then applied with genuine gold leaf.
Because of the listed status of the building we have been careful to make sure the new sign on the front of the building is the same size as the old Castle Tavern lettering, though much more traditional and in keeping.
There hasn’t been a hanging sign for a while, so it is good to get a new one up.
