To celebrate the opening, Loungers is donating 50p from every burger and 10p from every coffee sold at the venue during March. Loungers has transformed the former Budgens unit into a cosy, retro-style café bar.

Operations manager Jeremy Burton-Dickie, said: “We realise the lifeboat trust is a huge part of the community so we thought it was important to actively fundraise for this voluntary charity.

“Portishead residents and locals can tuck into a delicious burger or enjoy an excellent coffee safe in the knowledge they’re doing something good at the same time.”
