A Bury St Edmunds pub has been totally transformed – with a new bar, toilets patio area, lounge room and a updated menu.

The Glad Abbott, in Glastonbury Road, was taken over by Paul and Lizzie Steer in April after they got married just a year before.

The couple immediately set about revamping the pub, relaunching the establishment on Friday July 8.

Lizzie said: “Everything has changed, it has been completely refurbished. “The bar has changed, the toilets have been refurbished and the outside patio area has been redone. We’ve had a big log burner with a brick fireplace built in the lounge area, too. The toilets have been ripped out and redone and now have disabled access. We even have baby changing facilities now in the ladies toilets.

“We absolutely gutted the place - it really needed doing.”

Lizzie said the pub’s new menu was also up and running, serving food from Thursday to Saturday with a carvery every Sunday.

But Lizzie said the pub had kept the pub’s social offerings.

“We still have the pool team and the darts team. We have a 65 inch TV in the bar and a pool table too.”

Lizzie said her regulars have really taken the new decor.

“They absolutely love it,” she said. “I haven’t had anybody say anything negative about it at all. We have also seen people come in who haven’t been inside before. It’s a lovely place to have a pint or two.”
