A Hertfordshire village pub is closing for a huge refurbishment to give it a “contemporary country pub feel”. The Feathers in Wadesmill will shut its doors temporarily on October 10.
The work inside will include new carpets, furniture and furnishings. Three outdoor areas are also being renovated and landscaped, with a pergola seating area being introduced to increase the capacity of the beer garden.
The pub’s function rooms and 30 hotel rooms are also being redecorated to give them a “more luxurious and contemporary feel”. The Greene King pub will reopen in November as part of the Chef & Brewer collection of country pubs.

Samantha Hill, general manager of the Feathers said: “The Feathers is a place steeped in history and a cornerstone of the local community, the whole team are really excited to see the finished product after the refurbishment. We can’t wait to welcome back guests both new and old to the Feathers this November.”
The changes will also see a food menu including a specials board, a new weekend brunch offering and some additions to the drinks menu. The pub is looking for new staff for the reopening.
Vacancies include a variety of chef roles, both part time and full time. Applicants can send their CV to the pub directly on 7766@greeneking,co.uk, or apply via Indeed.
The Feathers is due to reopen on Monday, November 7. For more information visit the pub’s website here.
