The Bear Tavern, on Bearwood Road, closed its doors at the end of January and reopened on Friday following the completion of major works both inside and out.

The investment has created five jobs, increasing the pub team from 17 to 22.

The inside of the pub has received a complete makeover to create a modern, welcoming atmosphere including a brighter appearance thanks to an all-new colour pallet, updated contemporary décor and upgraded toilets.

The pub layout has been completely reconfigured – it is open plan yet zoned for different occasions to cater to all guests, whether they’re enjoying a family meal or supporting their favourite sports teams.
