A new restaurant will open in Clevedon next month.

The former Mon Plaisir eatery in Hill Road is currently being refurbished and is expected to reopen under the name PURO in mid-June.

New owner Dom Lamy was involved with running The Limehouse, which is also in Hill Road but, alongside his fiancee Alex Ward is opening the new restaurant to bring ‘elegant’ and ‘distinctive’ food to Clevedon’s culinary offering.

Dom is confident that PURO’s new tasty menu of UK dishes will appeal to diners.

He said “The vision for PURO is to bring fine dining and excellent service to Clevedon, offered in a relaxed and informal setting.

“Our menu and style will be modern British, but incorporating various flavours and cooking techniques from around the world.

“We believe in using locally sourced, fresh produce to create elegant and distinctive dishes.

“There will be a selection of menus which will appeal to everyone.

“We will be looking at introducing tasting menus at some point paired with wine, which I believe no-one in Clevedon is doing.”

Dom believes his experience in the industry will help him to bring something new to Clevedon town centre’s food and drink scene.

He said: “I have worked in hospitality for more than 18 years and aim to bring something different to the already popular dining scene in Clevedon.”

PURO has already appointed its head chef but is recruiting for positions including a sous chef, assistant manager and part-time waiting staff.

The restaurant’s a la carte menu will be seasonal and change every three months.

The refurbishment is expected to take four to six weeks to complete, but new signs advertising the restaurant are already in place.

PURO will open Wednesday to Friday from noon to 3pm and 5-9.30pm, noon to 9.30pm on Saturday and noon to 5pm on Sunday.
