Residents enjoy a pint in comfort of own care home

Posted on 26 April 2011

People paying for care in Hull can now enjoy a nice refreshing pint without even having to step outside their care home.

Residents of Ashdale Lodge in west Hull are no doubt making the most of the Ashdale Arms, which was designed around the traditional local drinking place, reports the Hull Daily Mail.

The pub features a snooker table, skittles, dart boards, beer mats and traditional beer pumps purchased on eBay, and best of all - it's free to residents.

Manager Lynn Buxton told the paper: "If we can recreate some of the things people like to reminisce about, it might generate some memories for them.

"They can remember the jobs they did, family life and it can get them thinking and talking about the good old days."

This follows news that Bexhill rest homes received top marks in Rother District Council's Food Hygiene Scheme, which will no doubt attract more people with long term care plans to the area.

According to the Bexhill on Sea Observer, Belle House Rest Home in the Old Town came out on top, having ranked "very good".
