A POPULAR pub is to close for refurbishment and has also announced the end of its famous carvery.

The 6 Acres, in Westgate Hill Street, in Tong posted on its Facebook page yesterday evening to inform the public that it will be undergoing a makeover from July 6 this year.

But the news also came alongside the revelation that the pub will no longer be running its "famous carvery", with the last chance to enjoy one on July 2.

The pub is named "The 6 Acres Famous Carvery & Dining" on Facebook and describes itself as "Bradford's Number One Carvery and Family Restaurant".

The removal of its carvery option will be sad news to many - particularly those who enjoyed the pub's notoriously large Yorkshire Puddings - but an update from the team this afternoon gave notice of some consolation.

The 6 Acres has "juggled a few things round" and will continue to serve plated roast dinners and its main menu "for a while over summer".

Breakfast, brunch and afternoon teas will be the new offerings once the refurbishment has been complete, served up in a new "unbelievable restaurant".

But a date is yet to be announced for the completion of the works.

The full post on social media said: "Get the dates in your diary.

"We have now confirmed the dates our doors will be temporarily closing for our refurb so please be sure to come see us and get your final carveries.

"We will have some great new changes to us as a venue as not only will we have two amazing venues for all your weddings and celebrations but we will also have a new unbelievable restaurant serving all breakfast, brunch, afternoon teas and much much more."
