A Scunthorpe pub is undergoing a six-figure refurbishment which has led to 15 new jobs being created.
The Warren Lodge, on Luneburg Way, has closed for the refit, which bosses say will provide improved sports viewing facilities.
And with the reopening scheduled for Wednesday, June 13, it will come in time for the start of football's World Cup the following day.
Stefan Hobman, general manager at the pub, said: "Warren Lodge is at the heart of the local community, so we want to provide our guests with even better surroundings to enjoy a great selection of drinks and schedule of sporting events throughout the year – making us the best pub in Scunthorpe to watch sports.

"We are also hoping to find a darts team and a pool team to take advantage of our new facilities.
"We’re really excited to get the refurbishment underway and look forward to welcoming our Scunthorpe neighbours to the revamped venue when it officially opens on Wednesday."
The pub is undergoing a complete design overhaul as part of the project, with significant interior changes including a new scheme of natural wood with bursts of colour and textures to create a modern finish.
High-quality sound systems from multiple screens throughout the pub will also ensure guests can enjoy major sports events, while the beer garden will also be improved with additional seating.
The pub will continue to offer its Flaming Grill menu to new and returning customers, while the new look venue will also offer an extended drinks range with additional craft beers and back bar with a wide range of spirits available.
