A popular pub in the Golden Triangle is shut for refurbishment and is due to reopen with a new name as a gastro venue late in May.
Sarah Jane Roberts, who runs The Rose Valley Tavern in Unthank Road, said: 'The refurbishment will take about four to six weeks, and we hope to reopen it by the second bank holiday in May.
'We decided to redevelop the site to give it some tender loving care and a new lease of life. We are also looking to rebrand it and there are two possible new names we're considering.'
Ms Roberts' business portfolio also consists of Beluga eaterie and bar in Upper King Street, Norwich, The Langtry pub and the Langtry Rooms hotel, both in Unthank Road, and The Buck Inn in Yarmouth Road, Thorpe St Andrew.
