A POPULAR York pub’s beer garden is set to get a makeover.

The owners of the Lamb and Lion on High Petergate have applied for planning permission to take down a timber fence and extend their existing patio area, as well as installing new planters and railings.

The Grade I-listed city wall lies along one side of the beer garden.

A planting area will be created underneath the window of a neighbouring house on Precentor’s Court and on a small area of patio, to the west of the beer garden, to reduce perceived noise disturbance.

The iron railings will also be replaced with banisters featuring an ornate scroll design.

A planning application improvements to the beer garden was refused earlier this year and the applicants say they have made an effort to tackle concerns about the impact of the project on the city walls and neighbouring homes. The pub and guest house is made up of two Grade II-listed buildings which are believed to have previously been a house and a shop, dating back to 1840, and another building constructed in 1782.
