A bar and hotel in Sheffield, which has been closed for more than a year, could be given a new lease of life if plans by the property’s new owner are given the green light.
The Psalter Tavern in Brincliffe has been shut since the end of 2016 but was acquired by a Chinese investor last year for a reported £1.2m.
Kai Yu Ltd has now submitted plans to remodel the interiors of the building, increasing the number of bedrooms from 19 to 23, but keep the property on Psalter Lane as a bar, restaurant and hotel.
There had been speculation last year that the building, which was previously known as The Psalter and Roslyn Court Hotel, and which lies within the Nether Edge Conservation Area, might be converted into flats.
Crosthwaite Commercial Property Services, which marketed the property, said in November last year that the new owner had already begun renovating the premises.
The planning application was submitted in mid-December and validated by Sheffield Council on January 15.
