AN iconic building in Hereford city will open next February as a restaurant.

As previously reported by the Hereford Times in August, The Cosy Club is taking over the former Farmers' Club on Widemarsh Street.

The building was last home to furniture shop, Simply Stunning, and is being renovated.

The Loungers Group, which is opening the new venue, said this week it will offer "informal casual dining, drinking and lounging in a homely and family friendly environment."

It is due to open on February 19.
