Congresbury's Mendip Spring Golf & Country Club has received a major refurbishment, improving bar and function facilities to enhance the experience for members and guests.

The owners have also ensured the work has preserved the character of the farmhouse, while modernising the building throughout.

A significant sum has been invested, with hopes of attracting more people to the club - be it to play golf, host parties or conferences, or even get married.

Scott Thompson, the club's director of golf, is delighted with the end product.

He said: "The owners have always looked to invest in the Mendip Spring to ensure it is always welcoming and vibrant, while maintaining the traditional feel of the original farmhouse building.

"We are really pleased with every phase of the refurbishments and have had nothing but compliments from the golfers and visitors who have seen it so far.

"We invite everyone to come and see the vast changes the whole venue has seen since the start of the year.

"It is the perfect venue for anything from a casual drink or a catch up with friends over for our Wednesday curry night."

Its not just the building which has been freshened up - there is a revamped menu offering high-quality food and a bolstered range of drinks available to sample.

Mr Thompson added: "Not only will you see cosmetic changes, but hopefully visitors can appreciate the work gone into giving our food and drink menus a makeover as well.

"We've stripped everything back and created menus that focus on homemade, freshly prepared food as well as looking at popular drinks with the creation of our new gin menu available - perfect for the summer evenings at Mendip Spring ahead.

"We are looking forward to a hot summer and hope anyone who may not have visited us in the past, to come and see what we have to offer."
