A POPULAR Congresbury pub has reopened its doors following a six-figure investment.

The Star Pub and Carvery, a Greene King establishment on Rhodyate Hill, closed in early November for refurbishment.

The Greene King website explained the closure: "We're closing for an investment and will re-open soon with a new look!

"Located in the village of Congresbury, the Star Pub and Carvery offers great quality food and drink in a family friendly pub atmosphere."

The restaurant has reopened with new décor throughout the pub and a new and improved exterior.

60 additional covers have been added to the seating area, as well as new festoon lighting.

The kitchen has also been refurbished and upgraded.

The investment has also provided a boost to the local job market. Ten new hires have joined The Star team in recent weeks.

Oliver Daniels, general manager of The Star, said: “Our team at The Star are excited to welcome customers back, both old and new, and show everyone what we have been working on over the past month.

“There’s always been a fantastic sense of community at The Star, and we’re confident the new and improved space is going to wow our guests as we head towards the festive season.”  

In the coming weeks, the establishment will host a Macmillan raffle. £500 worth of prizes will be available. There will also be an online competition where locals can win a meal for four in the lead up to Christmas.
The business will also be hosting Turkey and Tinsel days on Mondays in the run up to Christmas. This could be beneficial to those wanting to connect further with other members of their local community.

The company, which was originally founded in 1799, has 2,700 pubs, restaurants and hotels across the UK.
