Wetherspoons has taken its new site in Beaconsfield off the market in a U-turn move after scrapping plans to open a pub in the town last year. 

JD Wetherspoon first put forward plans for a £2 million overhaul of the former Prezzo Italian restaurant on Station Road in Beaconsfield New Town in 2022.

However, last August, a spokesperson said the plans were no longer going ahead and that the building would be put back on the market.

Today (April 9), the same spokesperson told the Free Press that Wetherspoon has once again “decided to develop its site in Beaconsfield, the former Prezzo restaurant on Station Road”.

Adding: “The development is subject to licensing approval.”

Wetherspoon was granted permission to change the building’s use to a public house in July 2022, with Buckinghamshire Council’s conditional permission stating that work should begin no later than three years on from the decision notice.

The planning documents propose a pub conversion over two levels with an outdoor terrace at the front and a first-floor terrace at the back, partly covered with a glass canopy.

Normal opening hours would be Sunday-Thursday, 7am-12am, and Friday-Saturday, 7am-1am.
