New look for Pink Pub

PUBLISHED: 17:14 21 September 2002 | UPDATED: 12:42 03 March 2010

BUTTERMILK is clearly the new pink at one Suffolk pub as its famous dazzling exterior has been toned down and replaced with a traditional, paler shade.

BUTTERMILK is clearly the new pink at one Suffolk pub as its famous dazzling exterior has been toned down and replaced with a traditional, paler shade.

The Wheatsheaf public house, Tattingstone, has fondly been referred to as 'the Pink Pub' by locals in the village for a number of years, but it remains to be seen if the pub will be renamed by its customers as it is now a neutral shade of buttermilk.

A refit which was paid for by Pubmaster, the pub's owners, cost in the region of £20,000 and both the landlord and regular drinkers are pleased with the pub's new image.

Landlord of the Wheatsheaf Robert Pearson said: "We have been here for over three years now and as much as we loved it before, we are absolutely delighted with the new look.

"The pub has remained open throughout the work being done with the minimum disruption. Feedback from our customers has been great, although secretly I think one or two are disappointed we didn't keep it pink!"

Pubmaster is one of the UK's leading pub companies, operating 3,200 houses nationwide.
