A DUNFERMLINE pub will be closed for nearly four weeks as refurbishment work gets underway.

Seven Kings, on Bridge Street, gained permission from Fife Council earlier this year to carry out a series of alterations.

Changes include the addition of timber and glass folding doors to separate areas of the venue, making it more suited to private functions.

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.

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

The bar will also undergo an extension while the main alterations will be to the gents, ladies and wheelchair accessible toilets.

Seven Kings occupies the ground floor of a 19th century, three-storey category C listed building and therefore listed building consent was required before work could get underway.

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.

Further upgrades to staff areas to staff areas involve minor alterations to the existing catering kitchen, including the removal of doors and addition of new doors to improve flow.

The pub closed from today (Monday, June 19) and is sceduled to reopen on July 14.
