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.
