Local pub set to get a new lease of life in its revamp

Have your say

A PORTCHESTER pub is closing for a makeover.

The Hungry Horse in Cornaway Lane will shut tomorrow and is due to reopen again on Friday, May 1.

Improvements being made include a new layout in the restaurant area, with furniture, carpets and paintwork.

The pub’s function room is being redecorated and there will be a new look to the bar, which will have a large TV to show live sports.

Manager Alex Jeffrey said: ‘The pub has been in need of a bit of a refresh and this makeover will be just the job.

‘There are a lot of improvements being made but we are hoping to keep the disruption to a minimum and are looking to reopen at the beginning of May, when we would invite everyone to come along and see the changes. I would invite all of our customers to come down and see us before we close.’
