Father and son buy well-known pub

A FATHER and son business duo have just spent tens of thousands of pounds renovating a well-known Weston pub.

Chris and Sam Cureton have bought the Britannia Inn, one of the oldest watering holes in town.

They have turned it into a contemporary wine and coffee bar, having completely refurbished the High Street property.

Sam, aged 20 has just finished his music technology degree at Weston College.

Chris, aged 57, said: “Sam had a son and that changed his plans and I was looking for a project.
