Little Harp’s transformation
A POPULAR Clevedon pub has undergone a complete refurbishment worth �360,000.
The Little Harp Inn has been closed since the beginning of May to allow extensive work to be carried out at the Elton Road site before it officially reopened on Saturday.
An extended seating area, boasting 40 extra seats, has allowed the full table service to be moved to a different area of the building.
A feature champagne bar has also been created and the pub’s interior has been redecorated with new carpet and new furnishings.
An extra 38 outdoor tables now mean there are 185 seats available for customers outside. There are also improved views across the Severn Estuary thanks to the demolition of a wall between the pub boundary and the promenade.
Karen Taplin, who has managed The Little Harp Inn for seven years, said: “We wanted to offer additional an dining area because we were full to capacity every dinner and lunchtime. We wanted to create a better dining experience.
“The outside area now offers al fresco dining in a relaxed, informal setting.
