Underwater pub

The Bull’s Head at Strand on the Green has recently reopened after a refurbishment which turned office space facing the river into another dining room and added more benches and tables outside.

Imagine general manager Barbara Smith’s consternation when last week’s rain flooding downstream brought the river up over the window ledge at high tide.

Part of the refurbishment involved costly work to reinforce the outside wall to stop the water seeping through the wall itself.

Looks like it hasn’t quite worked.
