There’s scaffolding up on the outside with banners stating ‘there is another way’.

Operator of The Northern Way Oliver Mattinson said: “We are transforming the old O’Neills pub to become a vibrant town centre bar with a focus on great Northern hospitality.

“We’ll be open all day every day and have the capacity to show a multitude of sports on a number of TV locations around the bar.

“There will be an extensive drinks menu which is still being researched and tested on our Northern Guinea Pigs – we will have everyday alcoholic beverages and twists on classic libations.”

The pub is due to open in mid-October.
