Nailsea celebrates very good cheer with festive food and fine wine at Christmas
Fabulous festive times are coming but some food and drink venues are waiting until the 11th hour to decide when to open and when to close during Christmas and New Year.
But many have already put in their grocery and ale orders and are busy taking bookings.
And some will be open on Christmas day for some traditional good cheer.
The lights on the Christmas tree in Somerset Square will be switched-on at the Eat:Nailsea festival although the High Street and Colliers Walk will be lit earlier.
This list will be updated and added to as the weeks towards Saturday, December 25 get nearer.
