One of Brixham’s landmark waterfront eateries is being transformed with a complete £250,000 ‘bigger and better’ makeover.

The Prince William – on the harbourside off Berry Head Road – is currently being transformed by a team of local craftsmen and women and is due to reopen next month.  Regulars are being updated on the progress of the work through social media posts by the team behind the transformation.

The refurbishment will include the interior and the exterior of the al fresco gastro-pub, bar and carvery. An Italian pizza oven will be among the new attractions.

Owners The Greenway Group announced: “We are proud to have sourced local contractors where possible and will be investing a quarter of a million pounds into The Prince William and Brixham.

“We truly love our town and community, and after 15 years of The Prince William being the same in previous ownership, we’re
excited to reinvent it into today’s world!”

The group took over the venue last year and began making changes and improvements.

“We have been making the most of what we had!” they said.

“We’ve been working hard behind the scenes for the past eight months, planning and organising for this day, and we’re very excited tllat it’s finally here.”

They say the new Prince William will have everything customers loved about the old one, and will make better use of the space available as well as having new menus, drinks and comfortable seating.

“We will also be removing everything you all disliked about it:’ they say. “Say goodbye to the toilets and the separate food ordering counter:’

The popular carvery will remain, with a full makeover and a ‘modern prestigious twist: There will also be range of local produce on the menu, and a programme of events.

Posting on Facebook, the owners wrote: “We are so excited to be able to bring The Prince William to its full potential in such an amazing setting.

“The Prince William will be fit for a king!”

A recruitment event will be held to find staff for tile new venue.
