And it is not just beer lovers who will be able to enjoy what the new look garden at Town Bridge has to offer - as East restaurant, based upstairs on the boat, will be serving Thai-loving diners under the gazebo.

Tracey Williams, from the Oaka Group which owns Charters and East plus The Brewery Tap in Westgate, said they were exited about what the outdoor revamp would bring.

“We are relandsaping the garden, creating a new, fresh look that will be a really nice space for customers to sit,” she said.

“And we are expanding too, making it even bigger, and there will be more picnic tables which will increase capacity. It is all very exiting.”

And with the restrictions only allowing alfresco hospitality, for the first time the boat’s Thai restaurant, East, will be accommodating diners under the gazebo in the garden.

From May 17, when restrictions are relaxed further, the restaurant will return to the top deck.

People can book now for either East, which currently does takeaways, or Charters online.
