A pub managed to open despite a car that crashed on its front in the first hours, said the owner.

The Swan Inn at Little Chart, near Ashford in Kent, will still be able to serve pints to outside guests despite the fact that the owner was woken up by the devastation around 2 a.m. on Saturday.

Ray Perkins said, “It was absolutely devastating because obviously we were opening today.

“We brought everyone together and cleaned the bar, each glass had to be washed again. “

He added, “We opened, we managed to open the pub – not inside, only outside. “

Perkins said he was “completely drained and” exhausted “by the incident, but was determined to open up to his customers.

He continued, “We have worked hard so that the last god knows how many weeks now to prepare him for today.

“At 2 a.m. they almost destroyed today for us, but that’s life.

Three 17-year-old boys inside the car were taken to the local hospital and treated for minor injuries.
