A BOOZER in WGC has not only had a name change and a lick of paint, but is also to start offering food.

The new owners of The Parkway Bar and Diner - formerly O'Neill's - are launching a menu alongside the introduction of a dress code for the newly-named Club 67.

Originally, owner Trisha McCall told the WHT the pub was "not going to be a food place, it's not a wine bar, we'll be keeping it as a local pub".

However, after a meeting it was decided changes needed to be made.

"We will still have live music on Friday and Saturday nights and karaoke on Thursdays in the pub.
