A popular Northampton watering hole is set to undergo a six-figure refurbishment and will install a new every day carvery.

The Quays of Crow Lane in Billing closed earlier this month for an extensive makeover, and as part of the investment, the pub will reopen with a completely refurbished bar area with the addition of a new, fully stocked back bar.

Bosses say the new carvery will be served fresh every day with a minimum of three slow cooked meats, a selection of eight seasonal vegetables and all the trimmings.

Carl Bruce general manager at the Quays said: “We’re incredibly excited to be undergoing such a huge refurbishment.

"The Quays is a great destination so we can’t wait to relaunch on Friday, January 26 with an even better food offering for both our loyal and new guests alike.

“The heart of the Quays is the pub so we’re really excited to enhance our drinks collection too, especially with the locally brewed cask ales and extension to our back bar offering. We look forward to welcoming the people of Billing when we reopen later this month.”

Alongside the carvery a full menu will also be available, which is packed with pub classics, such as hand-battered cod and chips, British beef and ale pie, and 28-day aged steaks served fresh from the grill.

The new-look pub, which also features a Wacky Warehouse, will maintain its traditional features and comfortable, homely atmosphere.

The venue will also offer an extended drinks range with craft beers, national and local cask ales as well as an expanded range of gins and rums.
