A family pub in Bexleyheath has reopened following a 13-day closure for a massive refurbishment.

The Yacht was closed for nearly three weeks whilst the builders moved in.

The large pub, in Long Lane, underwent a complete makeover inside and out, in time for Christmas.

Sue Barnes, one of the pub's landlords, said: "We have had everything done! The lot.

"We've had all new decor, new paintwork and furniture. Customers have been telling us how much better and spacious it is now we have it all rearranged."

The pub has had 108 bookings for Christmas dinner already, and business is booming now the makeover has been complete.

Sue said: "It's getting busier and busier as we get to Christmas. We think it looks really nice!

"We've had lots of people in for Christmas meals already."

The pub reopened last Friday, December 9, after an 18 day closure.

A Greene King pub, Sue runs the Yacht with Jason Togwell.
