The Farmers Arms, an 18th Century Country Inn will open for business soon.
The popular inn was purchased by Elaine Molloy and Peter Maull in November 2017. Backing from Barclays Bank and a micro loan from the Development Bank of Wales has enabled the business partners to carry out an extensive refurbishment programme including the creation of three boutique bedrooms. The Farmers Arms will offer bed and breakfast for those wishing to stay in the Waen or near St Asaph.
Elaine Molloy said: “The Farmers Arms has been a focal point for the local community for many years. We’ve focused on retaining the character and charm that both local people and visitors really appreciate.
“The support from the Development Bank of Wales and Barclays means that we can now open our doors to our first customers knowing that we really can offer great accommodation, high quality tasty meals using local produce and a very warm Welsh welcome.”
Investment Executive Anna Bowen added: “We enjoy a strong working relationship with Barclays so we were delighted to get involved with the refurbishment of the Farmers Arms. With extensive grounds and a rustic interior, it is such an unspoilt and welcoming traditional Welsh Inn.
“It is also particularly rewarding to know that our funding is making a real difference to local people who really do consider the Inn as the heart of the Waen. You can’t underestimate the social or economic impact of a good local!”
