Cheers! It's the shop in a pub
SHOPPERS are stopping off for a pint after they've stocked up on groceries at an unusual new stores.
The family-run British Oak pub has just expanded and opened Acorn Stores in a corner of its Bowbridge premises.
"We had a space there and thought we'd diversify, maybe draw in a few extra customers," said Dale Nicholl, who helps his mum and dad Carol and John run the inn.
"We've actually already had new people who've come in for essentials like fresh fruit and veg, people who've never really been in before, but they've liked the look inside and stayed for a coffee or a drink," Mr Nicholl said.
The father and son relationship is special, catch that perfect bond at a special photoshoot for them.

"Obviously it's helping the local community too as well by creating a hub. From next month we'll be promoting a cafe in here as well."
