Her daughter's partner Aaron Hanson, who worked at The Ferry Inn, will be the manager of the new premises.

On offer will be classic pub food alongside homemade cakes and chocolates. 

She said: "We are giving it a complete makeover and we want it to be a place people in the village can all enjoy with traditional, homecooked food at reasonable prices."

It is set to reopen on Friday, March 25, after being closed since last November, with a free buffet and bubbles from 7pm.
