SURREY — The fire-damaged Sawbucks Pub is set to reopen on Monday, Oct. 3.

The bar has been renovated over the past several months, following a fire there on April 25.

Surrey fire officials described it as “a small fire” in the kitchen that crews extinguished within 10 minutes, according to a story in the Peace Arch News.

The renovations took a bit longer than operators of the bar expected.

But the work is nearly done, and Almost Famous Karaoke is set to return to Sawbucks on Friday, Oct. 7, followed by a “Swinging ’60s” night with local cover band March Hare on Saturday, Oct. 8.

The pub is located at 1626 152nd Street in South Surrey.
