Diss pub The Burston Crown brings the beach to the beer garden
A pub has provided patrons with outdoor sheltered space, in the form of brightly coloured beach huts.
The Burston Crown, in Mill Road, has placed the beach huts outside to allow customers to stay at a safe distance from one another, while making unique use of their outdoor space.
Bev Kembery, 51, who runs the pub with husband Steve, said: “The idea came from suggestions on our Facebook page. It was inspired by pods they have in Sweden.
“You see our huts as you come round from the car park and they look so sweet. When it’s dark, the lights look beautiful.”
As well as ensuring safe outdoor drinking, the couple have introduced extra safety measures inside the pub, including a one-way system for using the toilets, notices, arrows, table service and hand sanitiser.
Mrs Kembery described safety as “the most important part” of reopening.
