National chain O'Neill's has submitted plans to renovate its pub in the Drapery, which is located in a grade II listed building in an Italianate style, dating to 1894.

The makeover would see changes made to the bar fittings, decorations, including new wall finishes, and parts of the floor would be replaced.

The beer garden would be refreshed with the building of a small pergola - a wooden gazebo-type structure - and the addition of a 65-inch TV is planned.

"It is envisaged that the proposed internal and external works will bring the site into line with the O’Neill’s estate, in an effort to maintain the visual appearance of the brand," reads the planning application.
