A BUSY Southampton city centre pub has closed for a revamp.

The Spitfire, on Above Bar Street, is set to be transformed into a new O'Neill's.

The watering hole, which is owned by pub chain Mitchells and Butlers, is set to reopen on November 29.

A Mitchells and Butlers spokesperson said: "From time to time we review our estate and take the decision to convert a business to another of our successful brands.

"We will be converting the Spitfire to a brand new O'Neill's.

"We plan to open the new Southampton O'Neill's to locals and guests on November 29."
