The national pub chain is seeking a licence from South Norfolk Council to sell alcohol every day between 9am and 11.30pm at the pub in King's Head Yard, off Diss Mere.

The £2.7m two-storey pub, which was approved in 2017, will feature a striking curved design with a mezzanine level and balcony offering views across the Mere.
