A PUB has put up a giant glasshouse in its grounds to ensure it can keep serving people during the winter months.

The Anchor Inn, in Nayland, introduced dining pods alongside its outdoor offering back in the summer after reopening following lockdown.

But with winter approaching and diners wanting to eat inside, the pub has had to adapt.

Coronavirus means to ensure social distancing and the business have enough covers the pub has thought outside the box.

A giant glass orangery has been put up in the grounds.

It features a dining area among trees and fairy lights.


Manager Ross Parrock said: "As we go into winter months we have had to adapt to keep our footfall up in the safest way possible now all dining will be indoors.

"We have just had a giant glass orangery installed on our grounds.

"The hospitality businesses are now having to adapt again to survive the winter months whilst putting customer safety at the top of its agenda.


"It opened last Friday and it’s been really popular and is fully booked this coming weekend.

"We have also had lots of enquiries for Christmas.


"We start afternoon teas in there next Monday." To find out more or to book visit www.anchornayland.co.uk.
