    One of the greatest rhetorical questions of our time was

    "Have you been to Harvester Restaurant before?"

    That bit gets a bit domp when we have a spell like we've just had. Might need a bit of filling first.

    With that many spaces it will be the patch on the corner, as the description says "between the hollies & kingsway"

    Cackling at the thought of what would go on in there! Zig zig from machine to machine....

    If that site is to be built on I wonder where the access would be? Down to the island and back up Kingsway or a route in near the front of Gym & Tonic?

    It cannot possibly be anything but a national chain outfit

    given that any independent would be laughed at by the banksters

    Whitbread (TableTable, Brewers Fayre, Beefeater), Greene King (Hungry Horse, Old English Inns, Eating Inn etc), Charles Wells, Marstons, M&B (Sizzling Pub, Crown Carvery, Vintage Inns, Toby Carvery, Harvester, Innkeepers Lodge, Ember Inns, Professional Country Dining Group, Village Pub & Kitchen, etc etc etc) all possible.

    Greene King only have the Barley Mow at Milford and Charlie Wells only pub in the area is the Greyhound at Yarlet; Whitbread only have 4 or 5 outlets in the area as well, so any of them could be looking to expand here. As an outside possibility Thwaites could be looking to add to the Bradley Red Lion and the Cannock Roebuck but it doesn't sound like their type of operation. M&B or Marstons probably the favourite.
