A PUB in Bournemouth has been given a £350,000 makeover complete with power points and USB points in the new booth seats.

The Moon in the Square, located Exeter Road in the town centre, was closed to the public from Monday, January 16 to 5.30pm on Friday, January 27, to allow the venue to be refurbished and updated.

Eddie Gershon, a spokesperson for JD Wetherspoon, said: "The Moon on the Square was our first pub to open in Bournemouth and has been a great success during the past 20 years.

"It is important that we continue to give our customers the best pub possible and are confident the refurbishment has resulted in an even better pub."

Updates at the pub also include a full internal redecoration including new carpet, internal lighting scheme, artwork, drink shelves, new bar apron for both bars and nine additional booth seats.

Asked about plans for a roof top garden, which pub chain, JD Wetherspoon, submitted to Bournemouth Council in November, Eddie said: "We are still aiming to do that, but at present the designs are being reviewed by Wetherspoon senior management."

Eddie said that additionally there is new external signage, pigeon proofing to the window bays and the the front elevation stonework of the pub has been fully cleaned.
