A BAR in Seaton, which closed for emergency repairs to collapsed drains, is reassuring regulars it is not shutting up shop.Winston's owner Jayne Harris and chef and proprietor Rob Stevens said, as of yesterday, it was business as usual.Mr Stevens quashed rumours they were struggling financially, and explained the closure was merely for renovation work.Mr Stevens said: "There were lots of rumours about us closing, which were having an adverse affect on our business. But we're still here and have no intention of going anywhere."We were doing a lot of renovation work, some of it planned, some of it unplanned - like the drains. It's an old building - small menial jobs sometimes take longer."We will also be doing a lot more work in the future, including on the restaurant and function rooms. And we hope to continue running a successful business."Winston's, in Harbour Road, will be introducing a new menu and starting a carvery night from next Friday (August 1).
