The Loungers group is a West Country chain with restaurants in Bristol, Clevedon, Bournemouth and Exeter – and it has now added Weston to its list of delicious eateries.

Brunello Lounge, which has been named after Isambard Kingdom Brunel, has set up home in the former Seven nightclub and transformed the space to have a cosy, retro vibe.

The restaurant is in Beach Road, opposite the Grand Pier, and its opening has created 25 jobs in Weston and the building has now become a family-friendly sanctuary.

It also offers a range of cocktails for people to enjoy as a treat any night of the week.

Brunello Lounge has been filled with eclectic artwork – including a large mural depicting Brunel, who has strong links to the West Country and is believed to have spent time in Weston.

The furniture is a mixture of quirky, pop-art inspired tabletobs which sit next to comfortable vintage sofas and old school benches.
