A pub in a west Suffolk town centre has temporarily closed its doors for a six-figure refurbishment. 

The Dog and Partridge pub in Bury St Edmunds posted on social media that it was closing temporarily in order to improve the pub and beer garden. 

Last year West Suffolk Council approved a planning application to build two pergolas in the rear garden and a metal entrance arch.

The new planned work comes after the pub revamped its hotel and upgraded all nine of its rooms.

The hotel is open as normal offering room-only stays while the work is completed. 

The Dog and Partridge pub will reopen to drinkers on Tuesday, March 28.
