Buck I'th' Vine? What does that mean then?

This is the wonderful local pub that we have been working on and this is how it looked before it fell into rack and ruin. How sad to see such buildings, rich in our heritage, fall into disrepair. Controversially for Ormskirk, there are always arguements, for and against student accomodation. Edge Hill is an amazing source of revenue for our town but the fine line between "too many" student properties always rages.

We personally are happy that this building has been purchased and plans made to make it into luxury student apartments and a new gastro pub although I am sure the debate is not too far away from us.

We cannot wait to see it restored and given some TLC. We have completed our part currently with the roof now cleaned gently and given a new lease of life. The colours of the slate and the carbon that has built up over the hundreds of years it has been in situ really add to the character.

There are always challenges that are presented when a building is in a public area and with such a busy pedestrian area, this one was no different. Ensuring that our method statements and risk assesments were in place, and also working out of hours helped to reduce risks. Obviously member of the public are the most important from a health and safety issue and although the new arrivals at Edge Hill increased our footfall, we managed to complete the job thoroughly and carefully.

We are fortunate to have a vast array of good eating establishments in Ormskirk, Burscough, Lathom, Southport and the surrounding area. However this does provide some competition and what will make us chose to eat in one particular place?


Obviously, a sure fire way to ensure that visitors are satisfied with their surroundings and will return again.

This also includes the exterior of any pub, restaurant or cafe. From a health and safety point of view also, pathways should be clean and free from slippy biological growth.

Ask DSgo for a free no obligation quotation. We are happy to quote for a six monthly or quarterly maintenance clean, or just a one off deep clean when required.

We are a reliable, family business that has amazing attention to detail and feel passionate about making your business look as amazing as it can
