The Shire Horse on Hurricane Close, Stafford, has temporarily closed its doors to undergo a significant makeover.

The popular Chef & Brewer site is set to reopen its doors to customers in March.

Bosses say there will be major renovations to the pub, both internally and externally.

The Chef & Brewer website says the pub was purpose built in 2002 with all the open fires, secluded dining areas and delicious pub food favourites of a Staffordshire country pub restaurant.

It says: "The Shire Horse offers a warm welcome to guests who can enjoy al fresco dining on the patio and attractive gardens in summer or relax by a cosy fire in winter."

More details about the makeover will be revealed in due course.
