New life at The Old Inn

NEW life has been breathed into a Clevedon pub since it was taken over by a new owner.

The Old Inn in Walton Road underwent a complete interior refurbishment with the creation of a new dining area after Paul Onslow-Carey, aged 51 from Clevedon, became the landlord at the Walton Road watering hole.

The garden has also been revamped with a new children’s play area and the establishment, which is managed by Neil Hancock, is proving more popular than ever since North Somerset Council moved hundreds of staff into the nearby Castlewood buildings.

Paul said: “I saw a rare opportunity to take on a pub that was declining with the benefit of the council moving in across the road.

“That was one of the main reasons why I took it on.

“I always thought it was a bit of a sleeping beauty.”
