Pub restaurant the Fire Station in London's Waterloo is to close for major refurbishment.
Managed by pub group Marston's, the 200-seat, 4,700 sq ft site has received multimillion-pound investment and will re-open in 2015 with a new look, and new food and drink menus.
The well-known all-day venue currently serves a pub-style menu including options such as soup with homemade bread, scallops, beef bourgignon, burgers, pasta, pies, steak and classic puddings such as steamed jam roly poly, plus a selection of cask ales and wine.
Managing director Colin Sadler said: "The Fire Station has always performed very well but the time has come for significant investment. We are looking forward to welcoming back our customers next year to a better than ever Fire Station."
The restaurant and bar was first opened by Trevor Gulliver, who went on to co-found the St John restaurant in 1994, and the St John Bread and Wine in 2003.
