Improvements include converting an existing meeting room, reception, office and store areas to public space.

A new reception area is also being proposed at the 18th Century Globe, off the Tuesday Market Place, while its existing bar areas will be refurbished, with new glass racks, carpets and timber flooring. New booth seating and drinks shelves will be provided, along with a new back bar with coffee station.

Architects acting on behalf of Wetherspoons say in a planning statement: 'The proposals are of a minor nature and will not adversely impact on the setting or significance of this listed building.

'The development is required to bring the building up to a high standard, to improve the customer experience and maintain the condition of the building overall.'
