A HISTORIC Colchester pub is set to reopen its doors at the end of this month.

The Stockwell, formerly a pub, will be opening as a family restaurant.

Owner Robert Morgan has pumped around £1 million into renovating the delapidated 14th century building, on West Stockwell Street.

Several treasures have been found at the site during its restoration, including a Roman road.

Punters and food lovers will be able to see inside the renovated building for the first time on Friday, November 30.
