New opening date for Cross Gates Wetherspoons revealed
The new opening date for the much-anticipated Cross Gates Wetherspoons has been revealed.
The planned opening date of Tuesday, March 3 was pushed back after a construction company involved in building the pub it went into administration, the Yorkshire Evening Post reported earlier this week.
Punters feared it could setback the opening by months, but luckily it will only be a matter of weeks.
The Charles Henry Roe in Austhorpe Road, Cross Gates, will now open on Tuesday, March 24, a Wetherspoons spokesman said.
JD Wetherspoon faced a long battle with Leeds City Council in its discussions to open the pub, which is in an old doctors surgery.
The firm won an appeal in 2018 after councillors failed to make a decision about whether to approve the proposal.
The pub will have a beer garden with capacity for up to 70 drinkers.
