A pub in Winchester has confirmed it is open as normal as scaffolding has been erected outside for works to be completed.

Bishop on the Bridge, at 1 High Street, is located on the bank of the River Itchen, and has been surrounded by scaffolding for a number of weeks now.

The scaffolding is in place to aid works in completing external redecoration, as well as work being completed on the roof.
