A new pub and restaurant is set to open on the outskirts of Welwyn Garden City town centre after planners gave it a thumbs up.

Last night (Thursday), politicians unanimously backed the bid for a venue on the corner of Bessemer Road and Bridge Road East.

The meeting heard the pub, run by Marston’s Inns, would create between 50 and 60 jobs.

Councillors welcomed the proposal, but concerns were voiced about the design.
