Starbucks has confirmed its restaurant at the Budgens Airport Roundabout Garage, in Locking Moor Road, will open in December.

The 2,375sq.m site will include a clearance bar, order point canopy, menus, condensers, and illuminated signs.

Budgens Garage opened in October and it operates 24 hours a day, with Shell, Greggs and a Costa Express already housed in the unit.

Concerns were raised by neighbours over the felling of trees to give drivers heading into Weston off the M5 a clear view of the garage.

The drive thru will be Weston's first and only Starbucks store, but it does operate a coffee shop at Sedgemoor North service station on the M5 northbound.

A Starbucks spokesman said: "We look forward to opening a new drive thru at the Airport Roundabout in December and will bring 15 jobs to the Weston community."
