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).
