Plans show that the restaurant are will be extended to diners will walk through a hallway into a large conservatory.

Doors can be flung open in the summer so diners can feel like they are eating outdoors, in a similar way to the Stuffed Olive restaurant in Wellingborough Road.

The bar area will also be extensively refurbished with a comprehensive whisky rack just one of the additions.

It is not yet known when the work will take place but the pub will be closed for two weeks while it happens.
