PLANS have been submitted to turn a former pub into a five-bedroom house, just weeks after it was changed into a continental-style bakery.

An application has been submitted to transform the Grade II listed Hare and Hounds on Henley Road and create three other houses at the site.

The pub building has had several owners over the past few years, including the winners of Raymond Blanc’s TV series ‘The Restaurant’, whose venture The Cheerful Soul lasted only a year.

It has recently reopened as The Continental Bakehouse, which took on a lease from the new owners after the premises was sold by Enterprise Inns in September.

Deidre Wells from Red Kite Developmment Consultancy, the agent for the project, said the tenancy was an interim measure for her client Hamden Homes while the housing plan was put into action.

English Heritage has awarded the building Grade II listed status in the last month.

Continental Bakehouse has not yet responded to a request for comment.

I know pubs are on the decline but this is a case of poor planning and bad luck all at the same time and a shame to loose such a land mark
