Keynsham's newest restaurant will be opening its doors to the public tonight.
Farrells in Keynsham
The opening night at Farrells in Temple Street promises to be busy, but if you ring up and ask nicely, they might just be able to squeeze you in.
The restaurant serves Irish/Italian fusion food, inspired by owner Barry Farrell's Irish/Italian childhood.
And to reflect this, one of Bristol's most famous graffiti artists Tom Bingle, aka Inkie, spent two days working on an image on the wall of an Irish woman and an Italian woman holding a glass of wine.
Mr Bingle, who is acknowledged to be Banksy's partner in crime, said: "I'm an old friend of Barry Farrell, so he invited me down to the restaurant.
"These days I do work all over the world, so it's really nice to do some work back here in the Bristol area."
The restaurant held a grand opening on Sunday, and chief waiter Eduard Paloka said it was a great success.
"It was absolutely brilliant," he said. "We had the biggest and best people from the Bristol catering industry here and they were very impressed. They loved the restaurant and the food."
