THIS is the look proposed for a Wetherspoons pub in a Leeds suburb.

As previously reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post, JD Wetherspoon has got the green light from council planners to turn the former Garforth Liberal Club into a pub.

Today the company confirmed to the YEP that the new pub will be called The Briggate.

No date has yet been set, however, for the start of conversion work at the site.

JD Wetherspoon’s planning application sought permission for internal and external alterations to create “storage, kitchen, customer and staff facilities” that would include a new beer garden.

A Leeds City Council report on the decision to approve the application said: “The proposed pub is appropriately positioned within Garforth town centre and will bring a currently vacant property back into use and generate employment opportunities.”
