A village pub has reopened with a new look after a £200,000 investment from an award-winning company. 

The Gate in Caister-on-Sea has had several landlords in recent years and reopened on Tuesday with new operators Darron and Shane at the helm.

The experienced duo are "excited to be part of the pub's new chapter" and want to provide a space to enjoy weekly entertainment events and live sports.
