About Us

Provincial Hotels and Inns has recently acquired a portfolio of Inns and hotels from brewery Mitchell’s of Lancaster. They include the County Hotel in Carnforth, Cross Keys, Carnforth (renamed ‘Taps on the Green‘) and the Windmill Tavern, Salwick.

Mark Chambers, Director said: “Our aim is to take iconic but under performing venues and breathe new life into them. Through a programme of refurbishment and restyling, we will place them once again at the heart of their communities.

Provincials brand of  ‘proper pubs’ offer craft beers and a selection of traditional favourites. Our family venues will offer quality and value for money dining with reasonably priced table wines, a coffee lounge and play areas. The hotel portfolio will be geared to local demand.

The portfolio comprises a mix of managed and tenanted properties. Kaushik Mistry, who owns the Slate Bar in Kendal and who joins Provincial as Operations Director, added: “In addition to the investment in the properties, we will be providing tenants with marketing assistance and full support to grow their business.”
