A HOST of stars offered their support to the revived Anchor Inn in Pill following a substantial cash injection.

Mezze Restaurants took over the reins of the Ham Green establishment, investing £350,000 to secure its future as a community pub and restaurant at the hub of the local community.

At a VIP launch guests, including comedian Eddie Large, Heart radio presenter Paulina Gillespie and BBC West weathergirl Jemma Cooper, gave the venue the seal of approval.

Owner Alex Tryfonos said: “We are absolutely thrilled with the transformation of The Anchor and would like to thank everyone who turned out to offer their support during our first few days.

“Receiving the backing of the community is really important to us and having Eddie, Paulina and Gemma offer their support also, was a real honour.”
