A pub which is hoping to open in Norwich train station has applied for a premises licence.

It was revealed that The Beer House could be coming to the station earlier this month.

The SSP Group, which operates brands such as Burger King and Starbucks, applied for permission for the pub in the empty unit between WHSmith and the newly-opened M&S Food.

A decision is yet to be made on the full planning application.

But the firm has now lodged a bid for a premises licence, allowing them to serve alcohol, with the city council.

The application says the times the pub would be open to the public 'may vary and will often depend on train timetables and station opening hours'.
