THE RETREAT INN IS UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT! The Retreat Inn has recently been taken over by myself and my family. We aim to improve this pub and enhance our customers experience in any way we can. We are taking note of our staff and our customers comments and we are starting our improvements as we speak! We have made plans for the pub and we hope that whatever we do will satisfy our loyal customers and our amazing staff members. The pub is a new adventure for myself and my family and we are very grateful for all the help from staff and the welcoming of the customers. We are so excited for this new journey and look forward to building great friendships with staff and customers.
