Houghton Trading have announced that extension and refurbishment work at the former Dog and Duck Pub starts on Monday 31st March 2014. When opened, they hope the new venue will provide a much needed, good quality, local family Bar and Restaurant with a mixed menu cuisine to cater for most taste buds.

The company have appointed reputable contractors from, C Woods & Sons (Luton) Ltd established since 1965. The building and refurbishment works are expected to last about 26 weeks.

Project managers are CCH Project Management and Cliff Herring will overlook the project. Disruptions are hoped to be kept to a minimum, to provide safety for the constructors and to  work within the fencing most of the time. There will be security on site including CCTV.

Nisa Local stores have supported Houghton Regis over the years, and hope to add more value to the community of Houghton Regis in the future.
