Following our recent article on Northern Ireland’s leading pub group Wolf Inn’s purchase of Iconic Bellevue Arms in North Belfast, the group has put down another £500,000 to refurbish one of North Down’s most famous bar and bistros.
Located in the Northern Ireland town of Newtownards the 12–seater ‘Romas’ bar is set to undergo an extensive transformation.
Andrew Gedge, Managing Director of Wolf Inns, who purchased Romas late last year, explained: “Work on the first phase of the refurbishment, the downstairs bar and restaurant, has already started and will be complete by Friday 30 May.
“A new separate bar, The Fox and Hounds, will also be created on the ground floor within the existing footprint of the building later his summer.
“Finally, the 120-seater bistro and private dining areas on the first floor will also undergo (a) complete refurbishment, culminating with the creation of a New York inspired open-air roof terrace.
“The new Romas will be the jewel in the crown of the Newtownards hospitality sector offering great food and the finest beverages for every occasion.”
Interior fit-out specialists, Strong Construction will be in charge of the renovation work.
Wolf Inns recently purchased Bellevue Arms in North Belfast, and also own Hop House and Ava in Bangor.
