Robinson’s Brewery confirmed the Queen’s Head, at Troutbeck, will be rebuilt after the 17th century inn was badly damaged by fire on Friday night.

The blaze ripped through several bedrooms after starting in the laundry room but did not damage the ground floor and bar area too badly.

Around 50 people escaped the blaze which began shortly before after 9.30pm.

Managing director William Robinson said they were devastated by what had happened but “what is important is that everyone made it out alive.

“We are extremely grateful to the staff and fire services for all that they’ve done,” he said.

“After all the people were safely evacuated, the firemen worked tirelessly through the night to protect and preserve the most historic areas of the pub for which we and our licensees are extremely thankful.”

The exact cause of the fire is still unknown.
