First look inside newly-refurbished – and renamed – community pub in Bristol


There’s a new pub in Bristol – or at least one with a new name and completely new interior.

The Warwick Arms stood on Charlton Road between Kingswood and Hillfields for more than 100 years – until it closed about a month ago.

And now, it has reopened following a £110,000 refurbishment that saw the building completely gutted, with what is effectively a new pub created in its place.

The pub was bought around a year ago by two friends who fulfilled a long-held dream of taking on their own local, and they saw the Warwick Arms as a venue with bags of potential.

Dan Finn and Sam Horrell said they want the new name – the Cossham Inn – to signal a fresh start.

Inside, everything has gone and it’s all new fixtures and fittings. “It’s modern, but with a traditional look,” explained Dan.

“The Warwick had a bit of a reputation, so we want this to be a fresh start and to show people locally that it’s under new management, and completely new inside and out.”

Dan runs a building firm while Sam has a scaffolding firm, and the pair have long dreamed – like many of us – of owning their own pub.

Scroll down for more on the story of the pub and its refurbishment – and a first look inside.
