Berkshire cafe faces closure over rent rise

A Berkshire cafe and bar is facing closure after the local council told its owners they were increasing the annual rent by 1,000%

Pauline and Andy Jordan spent £75,000 of their life-savings turning a derelict building in Crowthorne into Pinewood Bar and Cafe.

The couple say a £20,000 rent rise from Wokingham Without Parish Council threatens all they have worked for.

The council declined to comment.
