According to local rumour, the Admiral Hawke is getting a 'different' kind of makeover to the normal Smiths refurbs. Young Sam has apparently taken an interest in the design, having seen the success of the various wine bars / bistros that have sprung up in Boston Spa. So perhaps expect something other than the poky little rooms, dark stained wood and highly patterned carpets that usually get put in. I think the kitchens are also being done up and it will be interesting to see if a different food offering emerges. it will be interesting to see what this new 'concept' (as somebody called it) turns out like, though the situation of the Admiral Hawke, just outside the centre of the village, means it may struggle to get the trade that now goes into the other local establishments.
As to when it will reopen, do not expect any big fanfares or publicity - your only indication may well be when you see the scaffolding gone and the lights on when you pass.
