Provenance Inns bought the pub on West Park in 2021 and extensively refurbished it.
But the new, much smaller bar has met with a mixed reaction.
Provenance Inns has now applied for a variation of its premises licence to relocate the bar. A notice advertising the move has been posted in the pub window.
Anthony Blundell, head of business development at Provenance Inns, which bought the site in 2021, told the Stray Ferret:
“The application is for moving the bar.
“It is in response to the feedback we’ve received from our guests, since our remodel, to have a much larger bar that our guests can sit or stand at.”
Mr Blundell added the company had also applied for another bar in the upstairs dining room, adding:
“[This will be to] service dinners and make it even more appealing for private parties.”
The Coach and Horses has rebranded as the Sleigh and Reindeers over the festive period.
