A pub is bringing the flavours of America's deep south to a south Norfolk village through its barbecue restaurant. 

The restaurant of the Garden House in Banham will be transformed into the 'Smokehouse' and is to welcome its first customers later this month.

And to celebrate its opening the pub is offering visitors 20pc off all food during the first weekend.

Garden House landlord Stuart Kendall said: "We are really excited to invite people to visit the Smokehouse, where we will serve everything from smoked brisket, pork belly burnt ends, ribs and burgers - even the vegetables will be smoked."

Gutbuster and hot chilli pepper challenges are also planned for those brave enough to take them on.

The pub and restaurant hopes to offer quality food once again to the local community having reopened in January this year after a £65,000 refurbishment.

Mr Kendall added: "People living in the surrounding area have really got behind us since we opened earlier this year.

"We have had huge support and things are going well despite it being a tough time for people right now."

The restaurant is due to open on Friday, June 23.
