This particular unveiling doesn't usher in a new design trend or little-known cuisine. Indeed, it's quite the opposite.
The 12-month renovation at the Salisbury Hotel is about as revolutionary as a mixed grill at a country pub. Deliberately so.
"I'm very much a pub person. I'm not into this whole here today, gone tomorrow thing," says publican Trish Larkin.
"A lot of people go with something [off-beat] because they want change for the sake of it.
"If you do something timeless, we won't have to touch it."
Part of the "timeless" look Larkin talks about is the centrepiece 1926 beer delivery truck they've turned into a beer garden table.
"We found it on Gumtree," she says.
Chef Ridz Ma'rop (the Henson Park, Flying Fajita Sisters) walks a similar path, knocking out a menu of pub classics including beef and Guinness pie and Brew Truck Angus burger, as well as updated hotel dishes such as pork ribs with chilli and plum glaze with apple and fennel salad and a dish of maple miso salmon.
The beer offering blends pub staples with local craft beers.
"We wanted to create a pub environment where you'd be happy to take your mum, granddad or children," Larkin says.
