Pub-goers in Bournemouth are in for a new year treat this January when Holdenhurst Road pub, The Inferno, reopens following a £275,000 investment.


With a fun, friendly and relaxed atmosphere, The Inferno is the ideal place to meet with friends any day of the week. The revamp will see a new bar layout and the old brewery room upstairs converted into a new space, available for private hire with an option to include a fridge full of beer to the booking. A multitude of new HDTV screens transform The Inferno into the perfect place to catch the wide range of sport that is taking place in 2019, from football, including AFC Bournemouth’s televised fixtures, to cricket, boxing and the increasingly popular NFL. And with Six Nations Rugby kicking off in early February, there’ll be no better place to enjoy the games. 


The food menu has been kickstarted and now features a vegan chilli and rice, Jackfruit Bao Buns and a Jackfruit burger amongst other plant-based delights. There is also a wide selection of burgers, all-day breakfasts, sharers and tasty mains. The drinks list is second-to-none and boasts a wide range of local beers, craft ales and ciders including Arch Brewery, Beavertown and Lilley’s Cider. For those seeking something soft or special there is an extensive wine list, cocktails galore and a selection of wholesome smoothies to choose from.


The Inferno’s weekly programme includes a combination of entertainment and food & drink offers. Mondays are host to Speed Quizzing; Pancake Tuesdays and Wing Wednesdays offer pancakes or wings at only 25p each; there is Rock and Roll Bingo on Thursdays and Craft and Cocktail nights on Fridays; and weekends feature Saturday Karaoke and Retro Games Sundays.


General Manager, Roksana Zym says: “We are incredibly excited to relaunch our pub to the people of Bournemouth. Not only is the new look amazing but our menu offers a great range of food and drink and the team are great. We look forward to welcoming everyone in.”
