A historic pub in West Norfolk is set to open its doors following a major refurbishment.
Bishops of Chapel Street, formerly known as the Lattice House, closed for refurbishment in January this year and has undergone a £150,000 rebrand, jointly invested by the new landlords and Hawthorn Leisure.
The pub will be serving a lunchtime menu only with a full bar service from Friday, May 11, with full service including lunch and evening meals to commence from Friday, May 18.
The Grade II listed building has been operating as a pub since 1714 and has been renamed Bishops of Chapel Street in homage to its location in King’s Lynn, previously called Bishop’s Lynn, as well as the street it is on, Chapel Street.
It now includes a function room for private parties of up to 40 guests, a new bar and a grand piano in the upper floor to allow for live music nights.
The pub is being opened by award-winning chef and new pub landlord Geoff Jones along with his wife Joan McGowan.
Mr Jones said: “We can’t wait to open the doors of Bishops of Chapel Street.
“Our 15 new staff members have been through comprehensive training to ensure they deliver excellent customer service, and everyone who visits as strangers leaves as friends.
“We’re really proud of the site, a lot of work has gone into it and we can’t wait to share this with the people of King’s Lynn.”
Andrew Parker, operations director at Hawthorn Leisure, commented: “As soon as we spoke with Geoff we knew he was the right person to take on the site.
“He has a strong background in the hospitality industry, with two hugely successful sites across the UK and Ireland.
“Bishops of Chapel Street brings something new and exciting to the people of King’s Lynn and is a great addition to the town.”
The pub will be open 10.30am until midnight from Sunday to Thursday and closes at 1am on Friday and Saturday.
