A village pub is getting a new lease of life after it has been taken over by a family.
The Wildfowler in Terrington St Clement has been given a facelift since being bought by father-and-son team John and Gary Edwards.
The pub is due to re-open on Saturday, October 19, after being shut for six months after the previous landlord left suddenly.
The father-and-son team used to drink in the pub and decided to buy it after it closed.
Builder Gary, who lives in the village said: “We are really excited about it.
“We have had a pretty good response from the village. They are looking forward to getting back in there as it has bee shut for six months.
“It is going to have a family atmosphere, which I think will go down well with the customers.”
John has some considerable experience as a publican after previously running The Sandboy at Bawsey.
Gary’s partner Angela Firmage will be managing the pub while his sister Deborah Slingsby will be manning the bar. The pair of them will be joined behind the bar by Collette Horton.
The Wildfowler will also have a 50-seat restaurant where diners will be able to enjoy traditional pub food.
Gary said: “The feedback we’ve had from the village about the look has been good.”
