The Mill at Ulverston's History
Ulverston's Town Mill
The Mill at Ulverston was formerly one of the town's main flour mills, the Ulverston Town Mill, supplying flour to generations of families in Ulverston, South Lakes.
Parts of this charming Grade II listed mill date back to the 12th century, with the main building constructed during the 19th century. The Mill at Ulverston charmingly retains many original features to this day, including the huge working waterwheel framed by clear glass windows.
From Millers to the Mill at Ulverston
Closing in the 1970s and dormant for some years, the former Ulverston Town Mill was resurrected as a pub in the 1980s. Enjoying many ups and downs over a near 30-year period, Lancaster Brewery purchased the old mill in 2009. Formerly known as Millers, we completely refurbished the dated pub to create our charming and contemporary gastropub.
Converting the Mill at Ulverston
In October 2009 we introduced a new Cask Bar, Terrace Bar, contemporary restaurant and a completely new outdoor sun terrace to the Mill at Ulverston, offering our town centre a gastropub like no other in the South Lakes.
In the summer of 2015, following 10 weeks of further renovations and conversions, the Mill at Ulverston’s attic and formerly the corn store, was transformed from unused space to an endearing open Loft Bar.
In January 2017, it was time for a refresh! We completed a thorough refurbishment of the ground and first floors of the Mill at Ulverston and Lancaster Brewery introduced a new, exciting and expert team to run our gastropub.
In early 2019, we remodelled the outside terrace area. This involved all new composite decking, heaters, lighting and furniture to form a stunning raised area that catches the sun all day long.
In 2020, we revamped the Loft with new lighting, flooring, furniture and bar design. It now offers a lovely space for up to 80 people complete with a designer cocktail bar and lots of seating. The same year we also remodelled the entire Terrace Bar area with a new interior design, soft designer furniture, upgraded lighting and revamped bar. This area is now a luxury drinking and/or dining area, with leather booth type seating served by its own bar complete with cask/keg beer and a range of spirits.
