The Vale underwent a £125,000 renovation in late 2019, this has given the pub a fantastic new lease of life. The renovation has been sympathetic in keeping the true community pub feel but with modern and refreshing elements. The new fixtures and fittings create a welcoming ambiance which are perfectly balanced with electric furniture, both loose and fixed. The new signage scheme and lighting gives the pub a great curb side appeal and is welcoming for both tourists and the locals. The Vale is traditional and offers an affective one room operation with a well stocked bar providing ease of service to staff and management.
