A Greene King pub has reopened following a major renovation.

In March, The Dog & Partridge in Bury St Edmunds closed temporarily for building works to improve the pub and beer garden. 

Plans to build two new pergolas in the rear garden and a metal entrance arch were approved by West Suffolk Council.

Outdoor seating has been upgraded and a new VIP area has been created for larger groups to exclusively book through a range of party packages.

Adam Curley, general manager of the pub, said: "Our team at the Dog & Partridge cannot wait to welcome back the community, customers old and new to check out our new offering.

"The Dog & Partridge will offer an exciting place for locals and visitors alike to enjoy as we bring a whole new lease of life to the pub and hotel, whilst retaining all its existing charm, history and traditional atmosphere.

"We're confident that customers will love our improved facilities for an even better drinking, dining and overnight experience than ever before, just in time for summer."

The Dog & Partridge is located on Crown Street and is just a short walk from the Westgate brewery, which has been the home of Greene King since 1799.
