Plans to overhaul a High Wycombe pub have been revealed.

The Bell, a Grade II listed pub that is currently unoccupied on Frogmoor, could become The Sosh Club.

According to new plans being looked at Buckinghamshire Council, the pub is now under new management and could have an "orangery" extension built at the back, a sun courtyard and the cellar could be converted.

A new entrance to the building would also provide capability to host functions there.

The plans reveal that a separate application will be made to rename the pub The Sosh Club.

Although the building is believed to date from the 17th century, it has already been extended a number of times.

The plans say the new business plan is "modest" but will help revive it back to a "lively urban destination" for High Wycombe.

Describing their plans for the site, agents for the applicant say the interior spaces will be "beautifully naturally lit" with white painted brickwork and exotic plants, giving it a "minimalist botanic garden" feel.

The converted cellar will also have two new rooflights.

The plans state the iconic golden bell that is currently hanging out the front will be removed and relocated inside to an alcove behind the bar in a nod to its history.

Bringing an empty pub back into use in one of the main areas of town could prove popular - especially among the families and councillors who have previously complained about Frogmoor's historic issues with anti-social behaviour and a lack of shops.

And keeping the pub as a venue will no doubt please those who have lamented the loss of other pubs in the area.

Last week, the Bucks Free Press revealed that plans are afoot to turn High Wycombe strip club and pub The White Horse on West Wycombe Road into a 13-bedroom House in Multiple Occupation (HMO).

Meanwhile, The Junction pub, at the junction of London Road and Cock Lane is currently in the process of being turned into nine flats.

Back to The Bell and next door neighbours Quirks Salon are apparently supportive of its overhaul, as is Cllr Arif Hussain - who has in the past been vocal on the need to improve Frogmoor.
