A FAMILY-RUN restaurant chain is refurbishing a village pub ready to reopen it later this month.
Mezze Restaurants has taken over The Anchor at Ham Green, where it has signed a 20-year lease and is in the process of carrying out a major £350,000 refurbishment.
The revamp will create a modern venue boasting a cocktail bar, Mezze restaurant, an A La Carte restaurant and outdoor Mediterranean garden.
Mezze owner Alex Tryfonos was keen to revive the pub and reinstate its position as the hub of the community, particularly as he lives only one mile away.
He said: “We are thrilled to be reviving another community pub and injecting a new lease of life into The Anchor, especially as it is one of my locals.

“We hope that the community will get behind us and offer their support to this exciting new venture.”
Mezze is fast-growing business and The Anchor will be its fifth restaurant in five years in the South West, closely following by The White Lion in Portishead.
