A popular pub that was forced to close for eight days while construction work took place next door has reopened.

The Maypole pub had to close from January 10 to 18 to allow for works on the party wall demolition between it and the next door Park Street car park.

The car park is being knocked down to make way for a new hotel on the site.

This meant the pub’s covered courtyard had to be taken down and rebuilt by the developers – but the pub’s owner Vincent Castiglione reckons the seating area looks better than ever.

He said: “It’s all brand new decking and looks wonderful.

“We’re hopeful the building work won’t be disruptive as they finish early and our customers are very loyal.”

The car park will be closed until August 2024 for its conversion to a “premium aparthotel” with 229 rooms, a public courtyard linking Park Street and Bridge Street and a basement car park.

The aparthotel is expected to open in March 2025.
