Building work could start on the New Street premises as early as this month in Honiton.

Pub chain J D Wetherspoon has confirmed it is now the owner of the Star Inn, Honiton.

Purchase of the former family-run pub was completed after months of speculation.

The company has now revealed that building work could start on the New Street premises as early as this month, with a view to opening in March or April next year.

A spokesman for J D Wetherspoon, Eddie Gershon, said: “We are looking forward to opening our new pub in Honiton.

“It is well documented that Wetherspoon has been keen to open in the town for many months and we are delighted that this will now come to fruition.”

He added: “We believe a Wetherspoon pub in Honiton will be welcomed by local people and other businesses.”

The company already has planning and licensing permission.

Business leaders in Honiton previously welcomed the pub chain’s interest in coming to Honiton and said it would be a boost for the town and help to increase footfall in New Street.
