A POPULAR pub is set to reopen after a £160,000 refurbishment.

The Travellers Inn in Oxspring has been closed since January 19, but a tight six-week restoration is now almost complete and the boozer will open to the public again on March 5.

Owner Chris Crane said: "A lot of work has gone on inside and it's literally had everything thrown at it.

"It's been redecorated throughout, we've knocked through walls to create a more open-plan feel and we've got a beer garden and a kids' play area.

"I can't wait to open it up to the public."
