One of Great Yarmouth's busiest pubs has now closed for four months.
The JD Wetherspoon-owned Troll Cart, near Market Gates bus station, closed on Sunday for an extension and refurbishments and to allow for a new hotel to be built.
The £3.5m investment will see a neighbouring building demolished and an extensive new beer garden built, as well as a new 22-bedroom Wetherspoon Hotel in the empty three-storey space above the pub.
It is due to reopen on December 5, leaving the borough without a Wetherspoon pub for four months.
County councillor Mick Castle hopes other pubs will see a boost as patrons of the Troll Cart find other places to frequent.
He said: 'We are extremely lucky to still have so many pubs left here in Yarmouth, which is great news for both local people and holidaymakers.
'As ever it is a case of 'use them or lose them.''
