Christopher said: "We have given it a fresh lick of paint, mainly the upstairs area has changed with the second bar removed to accommodate the carvery unit.

"We are the only restaurant in Weston to offer a carvery seven days a week, so we want to move away from just being a pub and be somewhere people come for great food."
