THE Seven Kings pub in Dunfermline is set for a fresh look with improved toilets, new seats and more TV screens.

Listed building consent has been granted by Fife Council for an internal refurbishment of the Bridge Street bar which will also include upgrades to the kitchen and serving areas.

A planning statement on behalf of applicants Greene King said: "The proposed works consists of various minor internal layout alterations and a general refurbishment of the interior of the premises, to further improve the customer offering, and to help ensure the long term viability of the business into the future."

The main alterations will be to the gents, ladies and wheelchair accessible toilets, the pub will be redecorated throughout, with new wall and floor finishings, new lighting and furniture, changes to seating areas and the addition of new TV screens.

The statement added: "New timber and glass folding doors will be added to two existing wall openings near the bar counter, intended to be closed off to separate different customer areas for private functions.

"A new false fireplace and electric fire will be added in the dining room area, to add a visual feature to this area."

Listed building consent was required as the pub occupies the ground floor of a 19th century, three-storey category C listed building on the corner of Bridge Street.

A council report said there would be no "significant detrimental impact on the special architectural or historic interest or character of the listed building" as a result of the works.
