Controversial Wetherspoon pub to open in Muswell Hill

A controversial Wetherspoon pub is opening next week on Muswell Hill Broadway.

JD Wetherspoon has spent just over £3 million developing the outlet, which will open next week on Muswell Hill Broadway.

It will stand on the site of a former pub, The Village, previously the Express Dairy Building.

The chain say that 40 new jobs have now been created in the area.

At the time the plans were approved, residents expressed concerns about the arrival of a new chain, arguing that they would prefer to see an independent pub.

The Wetherspoon pub will be open until midnight, Sunday to Thursday and until one in the morning on Friday and Saturday.

‘I am pleased to see The Mossy Well opening in place of the previous derelict site,” said Cllr Pippa Connor. “I also hope Wetherspoons will continue to take account of local residents who have campaigned hard for reasonable opening hours.”
