A village pub's new owners have been given the go-ahead for a major revamp.

Tom and Nick Suiter bought the Coach and Horses in Dersingham, near King's Lynn, last year.

They have now been given the go-ahead for a two-storey rear extension and internal refurbishment of the building, on Manor Road.

A planning statement by Vertex Architecture said: "The proposal will provide additional floor space to enable a larger premises servicing food and drinks, along with bed and breakfast bedrooms above.

"The proposal will provide an additional two bed and breakfast rooms making eight in total, as well as a larger floor space for consumers to use through a restaurant space and bar space.

"The proposal provides much-needed additional floor space, bedrooms and facilities to a well-established public house in Dersingham."

It adds the two bed and breakfast rooms would be used all year round and benefit the local economy.

Dersingham Parish Council supported the proposal, which it said would "be of a benefit to the village".

The pub is currently closed. It is expected to reopen in time for Christmas.
