Lakeland Inns are a group of family run pubs & hotels in the Lake District. For over 7 years we have worked together and introduced a range of new features and services to their pubs. These include installing top of the range sound systems for their club nights and CCTV in their pubs to help protect their customers and staff.

In their flagship pub The Sun Inn in Ulverston, we have done considerable work helping to turn it into a very busy sports bar with screens that can be seen from all angles and a sound system to make their club nights go off with a bang.

Pub TV System

We installed a series of flat screen TV’s which are visible from anywhere in the main pub area. We also installed 3 above the main bar which can be used as digital signage so they can promote offers, gigs or events when needed. The TV’s are managed from one central location and can show anything from music channels to the latest match on Sky Sports.

Large projector screen in pub

The pub is a very busy sports venue so we were asked to install multiple projector screens within the main bar area. The projectors combined with the TV screens mean that regardless of how busy the pub is, every kick of the big match is visible to all.

Surround Sound System in Pub

We have also installed a club quality surround sound system in the pub. This pub in particular has multiple uses which meant the surround sound system had to be very flexible. During the day and early evening it is required to play ambient background music for diners and their family, and of a night it is used to play music for club nights. With the pub showing a lot of sports it also had to work with the TV’s and projector screens to provide a great atmosphere a sports venue should have. The surround sound system can be controlled and varied throughout different zones in the pub. Understandably, not everyone who comes to the pub wants to listen to the match and might want to have a quiet drink with friends. Our custom designed sound system ticked off all these boxes and has now been rolled out across their other pubs.

Pop up projector screen in pub

The Sun Inn is a busy sports venue and with big sporting events often happening in the summer sometimes the customers want to enjoy their drink in the sun. We have installed temporary pop up screens and sound systems so that customers can enjoy the sporting events in the pubs beer garden. This has proven to be a huge hit with customers year on year.

Wifi distribution in pub

Most people now expect wifi to be available in any public venue. With the pub being fairly large with thick walls many people struggled to get a wifi signal within the property, and when they did it often got overloaded with traffic We managed to solve the problem with a wifi distribution system which customers can access in every area of the pub and gardens. The system can also deal with high volumes of traffic so that even at the busiest times everyone can access the internet.


CCTV has become essential (and law) for many pubs to help protect customers and staff. As The Sun Inn is a large venue this posed a problem of having a CCTV system that covered all the key areas without being imposing. We installed additional CCTV that included a series of discrete cameras in well positioned areas. This means that we were able to protect the customers and staff with minimal intrusion and customers don’t feel like they are being watched. The system can be viewed via an app remotely anywhere in the world and can provide authorities with HD footage should an incident happen.
