A SALISBURY pub has reopened its doors following a £130,000 refurb and new name.

Formerly called the Cloisters, the new Bell and Crown pub has been completely transformed following the investment, creating a "quality local" for the area.

The refit included full external redecoration and new signage, and complete internal redecoration whilst still retaining the traditional charm of the pub.

The Bell and Crown is new publican Ilia Klekovkin's second pub with Ei Publican Partnerships and he and his team pride themselves on providing a superb guest experience with excellent customer service. Having already run the Haunch of Venison, also in Salisbury, for three years, Ilia and his team know the area very well and hope to re-establish the newly refurbished Bell and Crown as a favourite amongst locals.

The pub reopened on Thursday April 11 and the team were joined by The Mayor of Salisbury, Cllr Mike Osment to celebrate the occasion.
