A derelict pub has reopened under a new name and management.
The Duke Of Oxford reinvents a building previously known as The Three Queens, The Grove and Kameleon, on the corner of Oxford Street.
It has been transformed by brothers Jonathan and Gregory Dudd, primarily using furniture bought in auctions and then restored.
Jonathan said: “We have taken a derelict building, which has been boarded up for three years, and turned it into one of the nicest places in Weston.
“We have a grand piano, and are going to have a pianist come in. It has a very classy look.”
Food includes a Sunday carvery, and Jonathan said the pub would provide traditional meals ‘with a twist’.
