Pub chain plans to begin work at the seafront site on Monday, September 30.
WORK is set to start on the site of the new JD Wetherspoon pub at the seafront this Monday.
The two storey pub and restaurant on the former Collingwood Hotel site is to feature a glass dome, beer garden and sea view roof terrace.
The development plans had rumbled on for several years, with the company dropping an earlier scheme to build a hotel on the site.
Wetherspoon spokesman Eddie Gershon said they were looking forward to starting work:
“This is a major project for the company and we are confident the new pub will be a great asset to the town.
“Hopefully, it will also act as a catalyst for further investment from other businesses into Ilfracombe.”
It is due to open at the end of April next year.
