Popular Newcastle pub the Corner House Hotel has closed temporarily as it undergoes a £175,000 makeover.

The Heaton Road pub is going through an extensive transformation into a Flaming Grill pub restaurant, with a focus on providing steaks and grills.

Flaming Grill is part of Spirit Pub Company which owns and operates around 800 managed pubs across the UK. Other brands in its portfolio include Chef & Brewer, Fayre & Square and Taylor Walker.

As part of the investment, the pub will receive a complete refurbishment with a new decor, new furniture and kitchen equipment.

Corner House Hotel general manger David Leech said: “My team and I are really excited about the new features of the pub, especially the new menu.

“We’re sure that regulars and new guests alike will be impressed with the improved look and feel of the Corner House.”

The pub reopens on Wednesday, July 23.
