Damage at Dereham's Railway Tavern


High winds ripped through a Dereham pub this weekend causing £50,000 worth of damage.

The Railway Tavern on Yaxham Road had its permanent marquee blown across the garden and in to the road during Friday night’s bad weather.

The pool table, disco and bar inside the bolted-down marquee were all damaged during the storm.

Owner Paul Sandford said he is devastated – but wants to reassure customers everything should be replaced by this weekend for functions.
