A popular pub has opened its doors to customers after a month-long refurbishment.

The new owners of the Priory Tavern in Belsize Road said that they hoped the pub would provide a “relaxed environment” for punters to enjoy.

The watering hold closed for refurbishment, which included redecorating inside the pub and painting the exterior, on July 3.

Customers were welcomed back to the new-look pub on Friday (August 4), and many might have noticed a few changes.

Co-owner Joe Smee said that the televisions and pool table had been removed from the venue, while a new yet-to-be-finalised sample menu is now on offer.

Head chef and co-owner Glyn Bell has put together a varied evening menu, with offerings including everything from ribeye steak to cauliflower pakora.

The pub’s website promises “cosy interiors and warm hospitality”, claiming to be the perfect spot for a catch-up with friends or a dinner for two.

It adds: “You can unwind and enjoy your visit in a laid back environment where the emphasis is on good food, good drinks and good company”.

Situated close to Kilburn High Road Overground station, the Priory Tavern is open from 1pm until 11pm, Monday to Friday, and until 10pm on a Sunday.
