Stunning 15th Century Pub Refurbishment in North Wales

Safe means of escape for first floor tenants above the pub


It is always challenging renovating Grade II* listed buildings. The George & Dragon a historic pub, in Beaumaris, a coastal town in Anglesey, North Wales was no exception, as it required a safe means of escape for first floor tenants above the pub.

Phillip and the brewery team considered numerous options to tackle the fire safety issue, including putting in a new, strategically placed flight of stairs to resolve the problem, but this just wasn’t feasible as they needed to make as little impact as possible on the building, which dates back to 1410 in places.

Phillip said: “After doing the assessment Danny told us that they could fit the Automist product for us. The system was perfect, everything is concealed apart from the five sprinkler heads which are so discreet they just blend in with the decor.”
