A town centre pub has temporarily closed for ‘six-figure’ refurbishments to its beer garden.

A spokesperson for Greene King said: “We can confirm The Dog and Partridge on Crown Street, is closing for a short period while it undertakes a six-figure investment to its garden area.

“The Dog and Partridge will reopen its doors to the public in late March, following the completion of major renovations.”

The hotel at the pub has recently been revamped, with all nine rooms upgraded with new beds, fixture and furnishings, alongside refitted bathrooms.

The planning application detailed plans to install a new metal frame arch for climbing plants and the seating area, a new metal entrance arch including signage and associated groundworks.

A design, access and heritage statement said: “The Dog and Partridge is an important part of the local community. The effective use of the external space, is crucial for the public house in maintaining a sustainable business model moving forward.”

The pub is part of the Greene King group.

The Grade II listed building is understood to date back to the 17th century.
