The refurbishment will also include new planting and lighting.

Ben Cooke, general manager at Rushcutters Arms, said: "The Rushcutters Arms is part of a collection of characterful Chef and Brewer local country pubs. The venue offers a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere whatever the occasion, so we want to provide our guests with even better surroundings to enjoy our fantastic take on British Classic Food and carefully curated choice of fine wines and cask ales.

"We're really excited to get the refurbishment underway, and look forward to welcoming our Norwich neighbours to the revamped venue when it officially opens."
