A carvery house has opened in Worle, after its owners spotted a gap in the market.

Father and son team Paul and Frank Sprackman run four pubs together, including The Woodspring, in High Street, which they have just taken over.

It has been converted into a carvery house and traditional pub.

Manager Martyn Gavin said: “They decided the area was missing a delicious home-roast carvery and noticed most of the community were travelling further afield.”

The Woodspring was formerly an open-plan pub, but it has been redecorated and divided into two sections.
