Burnham-On-Sea’s Reeds Arms pub has re-opened following a £600,000 refurbishment and upgrade.

The JD Wetherspoon pub on Burnham’s seafront has been temporarily closed for the major refurbishment.

The popular pub, which originally opened in May 2004, has undergone extensive refurbishment and redecoration work over the past few weeks.

Inside the pub, which has been completely redecorated, there is a new colour scheme and artwork on walls, new lighting and Burnham-branded carpets, a new fireplace, with existing furniture reupholstered and refurbished.

In the beer garden, brand new seating has been installed with new booth seats facing the sea. A new screen protects the seafront entrance from high winds. There is also a new conservatory area around the Pier Street entrance.

The ladies and gents toilets have also been completely refurbished and redecorated.

New self-service coffee machines have also been installed, together with improved bar dispensing equipment.

Behind the scenes, new pizza ovens have been installed in the kitchen and new staff facilities have been added.

Pub manager Oli Haskins told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “Wetherspoon has spent £600,000 on The Reeds Arms, providing further investment into the town, during the pub’s 15th anniversary year.”

“My team and I are looking forward to welcoming customers back into the pub and we are confident that they will be impressed by the refurbishment of the building.”

“The pub is lighter throughout and more up-to-date and welcoming.”
