A TOUCH of the Wild West came to Hilsea as the newly-refurbished Coach and Horses pub opened for business.
The pub has been rebranded as a Flaming Grill, complete with £340,000-worth of renovations.
Brian Featherstone was named Sheriff and given the chance to open the pub.
He was given the honour for his commitment to the Heart of Portsmouth Boxing Academy, where he volunteers as a training coach for young people learning how to box.
Pub manager Eileen Stables said: ‘The Coach and Horses has really got off to a blazing start and it was great to see the pub packed with people of all ages having fun and enjoying our saloon-style antics and magic tricks.’
