A village pub is celebrating after flood waters receded four weeks on from Storm Ciarán. 

The Ferry Inn in Horning has only been accessible by boat since October 26 due to flooding brought on by recent storms. 

The pub is now fully open to those travelling by car or on foot as flood waters have finally receded. 

Manager Paul Walker said a huge clean-up operation has been under way including ripping up much of the flooring in the main bar and restaurant.

"The last few weeks have stretched us an awful lot, we went days without customers," he said.

"It's nice to see some faces and it's going to be really good to have a pub full of people again."

The kitchen has been closed for the last few weeks but is now serving a limited menu with carveries returning on Sunday. 

The pub will also be hosting live music on Thursday and Friday this week. 

Mr Walker added: "We've got plans in place to help minimise the effects of flooding in the future - but if the water wants to come in it will."
