The Dyvels is in the detail
One of Northumberland’s most popular pubs has settled down nicely under new ownership. The Dyvels Inn in Corbridge was taken over last October by Leanne Muirhead, former area manager for local pubco Proud Inns Ltd.
“It’s been busier than we thought it would be,” says Leanne. “We’ve had great local support from the village, the rugby club and The Valley Indian Restaurant, so the word’s getting out there.
“We just want to carry on the theme of what’s been done before – the quirky but traditional look with an emphasis on good, home-cooked food.”
The Dyvels had been totally refurbished in June last year following the floods that Storm Desmond brought so destructively to Corbridge, so the pub is in good order, but plans are also in place to upgrade the beer garden, put new steps in, and use the terrace area for outdoor entertainment.
“We’ve got a brilliant gardener who’s even going to plant up the fallen tree in the garden,” she says. “Bless him.”
