Paul and Sam Rhodes have been given the go-ahead to turn the Queen Annes Walk building on the Strand into a restaurant, following a meeting of North Devon Councils planning committee on Wednesday. The couple said the new restaurant, which will be called Queen Annes, will be a predominantly daytime restaurant, serving fresh seafood supplied from local boats. It will also be opened for special evenings, and the couple have plans to make the premises available for weddings and special functions. Paul and Sam hope the restaurant will open in May. Were ready to get started now, said Paul When we saw the size of the building and the scale of the project we were very excited, and thought we would go all in on the Strand. Its a massive project and a really exciting one.
