This is the scene at the rear of Perkin Warbeck, in Taunton, which closed earlier this month for almost three months.

Owners Wetherspoons are spending £1.4 million refurbishing the premises.

They are creating an open-air roof terrace cum beer garden looking out onto Church Square and St Mary Magdalene Church.

There will also be a covered undercroft with seating at the front in East Street and an additional rear terrace, The pub is due to re-open on October 3.
