A 17th century London Colney pub is set to close its doors today, but regulars can rest assured it is only temporary as the pub is undergoing a major revamp.
The Bull in Barnet Road will get a full facelift with new flooring, new and refurbished furniture, an updated bar area and toilets.
It will be closed for two weeks.
Publican Julie James, who runs the pub with Martin Kelly, said: “We hope our regulars will forgive our break in service, but our pub was starting to look unloved and uncared for so something needed to be done.
“This is very much about upgrading and refurbishing, inside and out, and catching up on some outstanding building repairs. There’s also a fair amount of work being done in the back bar area.

“However, we know we already have a winning formula here, so we don’t plan to change the traditional feel of the pub. It will be back to service as normal as soon as we can.”
Both Julie and Martin are experienced musicians and live music sessions are held at the pub twice a month, with Martin still working for the English National Opera.
