An investment by independent pub company Punch Pubs & Co has helped to relaunch a Bristolian pub with a new face behind the bar just one of the many changes.

The Moorend Spout sits within the town of Nailsea and is just a stone’s throw away from the sea and the bustling city of Bristol. Thanks to the investment, the pub has undergone a dramatic refresh with several elements being reinvented and adapted with the hopes of bringing it back to life.

Having recently launched a new spring/summer menu, the pub now offers a variety of dishes from traditional pub classics such as gammon, egg and chips and hearty burgers, to world-inspired dishes including king prawn and crab linguine, coronation chicken salad and a pork tomahawk steak.

Positively, one of the biggest changes, is the addition of new Management Partner Fernando Kucmanski, who is taking the helm and hoping to drive the pub into new beginnings.

No stranger to the pub trade, Fernando has a history of managing pubs and now, alongside his wife, Noeli and their daughter, he is excited to see what the future has in store for them.

Fernando said: “We recently had our first bank holiday in the pub, and we didn’t expect it to be so busy. We’ve had great feedback from really happy customers, and people have been so positive.

“I’ve always been a salesman and when this opportunity came along, I couldn’t wait to get started. The pub has been refurbished, but it’s still classic, my family and I are hoping to have some great memories here.”

No two days are the same at The Moorend Spout, which plays host to local events and family fun days, live music, weekly quizzes, and monthly comedy nights and in keeping the sporting community happy the pub has also installed BT Sports to showcase some of the worlds biggest sporting events.

It also boasts a generous rear garden, which provides sunny spots for friends and family to get together as well as a showstopping firepit perfect for those cooler evenings. For those extra special occasions, guests can also opt to dine privately with an exclusive space and private bar available for a true sense of the VIP treatment.

Punch Pubs & Co Operations Manager Helena Perry is optimistic that with a new face behind the bar, a fresh menu and entertainment, the sky is the limit for this popular local.

Helena said: “Fernando’s presence is just what The Moorend Spout needed and with the investment from Punch I am confident that these exciting changes are going to be popular with the locals. In the first few weeks of trading, Fernando is already off to a great start, so the only way is up from here onwards.”
