The Eel Pie on Church Street is currently getting a major makeover. The ground floor space is getting extended into where the toilets used to be and the ‘facilities’ are being moved upstairs. The new look will divide the pub up into more clearly defined different areas (the sporty bit, the relaxy bit, etc) and they’re even going to start doing food n everything. It’s the modern way, you know. The pub is due to re-open later in February. Good luck to ’em.

Meanwhile, at the other end of town, The Prince Blucher is also getting the major refurb works. Work is well underway and it too is set to re-open later this month. You can see a picture of the work there on their Twitter feed.

(And in other news, we’ve seen that The Royal Oak looks set to become a sports bar – or at least that’s what one pub website said)
