A TOWN centre pub could be undergoing a makeover as the company which owns it looks for new tenants.

The Globe is set for a refurbishment early this year with its owners saying it would make it the “go-to town centre destination for quality drinks and food at all times of the day and for all occasions”.

Though no details on how the pub might be refurbished could be confirmed, owning pub company Hawthorn Leisure is now looking to let the inn to a new tenant.

It said, depending on who the company partners with, the refurbishment could cost between £50,000 and £100,000.

A spokesperson for the company said: “We are looking to refurbish The Globe making the most of its prominent position and fantastic history.

“We have plans drawn up but the final look and feel will depend on the aspirations of our partner once they are appointed to the pub.

“We are looking forward to restoring The Globe and seeing it return as a great Andover pub.”

Describing the trading opportunity Hawthorne Leisure said: “This pub can take full advantage of all of the trading sessions that such a location affords, such as opening early to take advantage of the popular and profitable coffee market, offering a quality breakfast proposition and introducing a quality daytime and evening menu.”

The company adds a partner can apply for a pavement licence to take advantage of the “popular demand for the growing street café culture.”

At one point the establishment was renamed the Victoria Cross, but was reportedly changed back to The Globe soon after due to public opposition.

It was once owned by television sports presenter Dickie Davis who ran it as a lounge bar and restaurant in the 1960s.
