A 17th century pub at the heart of a Norfolk village is set to reopen tomorrow with a brand new look.

Formerly known as Kindreds before its shock closure last year, the Queen's Head in Wymondham has returned to its original name and has been totally revamped by new owner, businesswoman Victoria Anderson.

Victoria has vowed to stick true to the pub's roots of being a welcoming, independent family business, with the pub and restaurant interiors updated to highlight the building's many unique original features.

Doors open tomorrow for drinks, with food available from December 7. Head chef Tom Navarro, previously of Brasteds, has developed his menu around seasonal and locally available produce, with pub classics and monthly changing specials at sensible prices.

Victoria says: 'It is important an effort is made to keep businesses such as The Queen's Head open to serve the local community. It is a challenge as lifestyles have changed over the years and certainly since the 1700s when it first opened. We hope that by offering a wide range of ales, including local brewers, and introducing freshly prepared food to enjoy in a comfortable and relaxed environment, that the residents of Wymondham and visitors to the town will get behind the venture.'
