THE FAT Boar, Mold has released a full statement on its month-long closure - announcing plans for a major refurbishment. 

The Leader reported on Friday afternoon that the pub would be closed until early November for building work

And later on Friday, the Fat Boar, Mold issued a full statement on its Facebook page - detailing a £50,000 overhaul of the building.

It said: "It's been a tough few years for everybody we're only now really catching our breath after the pandemic. At the Fat Boar, we're incredibly grateful to all our brilliant customers who have stuck with us throughout. 

"But time has taken its toll on the building since we opened in Mold eight years ago because it's been so busy. As a result, the property is in need of some serious TLC. 

"This time of year is generally really quiet so we've taken the decision to close the doors temporarily to carry out some improvements, following consultation with the local council."

The statement continued: "Unfortuantely, our high standards had slipped and we've made a few mistakes along the way so we're going to make sure that everything is absoutely spot on from now on. 

"So, we're having a major £50,000 refurb, redecorating the whole building from top to bottom to give us a fresh new look inside and we're having a new bar set up and replacing all the pumps."

The pub is also extending the beer garden, with the creation of a bigger heated area with more seating. 

The statement added: "We also have a duty to provide the best working environment for our wonderful staff so we can carry on being a good employer and continue being an important part of the local economy.

"We can't wait to welcome you back to the new, improved Fat Boar."

The pub will reopen its doors on November 13.
