JD Wetherspoon withdraws Jersey pub application

The UK pub chain JD Wetherspoon has withdrawn its application for a licence to open a pub and restaurant in St Helier.

The company said it needed more time to prepare the application and would resubmit in September.

The group had wanted to move into the vacant Bar Rock site on the Waterfront.

The chain originally applied for a first, third and seventh category licence to serve alcohol and serve food at the pub.

JD Wetherspoon recently started selling beer brewed at Jersey's Liberation Brewery at its venues in the UK.

Also applying for a new licence is Barbecue Boss on Rouge Bouillon, which wants a sixth category licence so it can act as an off licence.
