THREE sisters have bought, refurbished and relaunched a North Devon pub.
Lesley Nicholas, 50, Tracey Vincent, 47, and Tish Sellwood, 44, are the proud new owners of the Pyne Arms at East Down.
The pub is now being run by Tracey's daughter and son-in-law, Amie and Ellis Pannell.
Lesley, who lives at Patchole, said: "I managed to talk my two sisters, who are as stupid as I am, into buying it. Catering is in the family and it is a nice little pub.

"It is difficult to get a bank loan these days. Amie wanted to do this and we wanted to help. We are a big family and it will provide opportunities."
The Pyne Arms is offering locally sourced food with a modern twist with everything from a Sunday roast to speciality fish on the menu.
Tracey and Tish both live in Braunton and the family farm is at Brinscott.
Lesley said Amie and Ellis came from the Rock at Georgeham and set up the Instow Arms before that.
She said: "They both went to Braunton School and North Devon College and have both travelled a lot, picking up lots of skills, ideas and inspiration. We wish them all the best."
