Plans have been submitted to extend the former Natwest building in Braunton to create a restaurant and bar.

A PLANNING application to convert the former Natwest bank in Braunton into a restaurant has been submitted by the owners of Squire’s Fish Restaurant.

The plans include extending the building on Exeter Road to create a brand new bar and restaurant, employing between 15 and 25 people.

The restaurant is planned to cover two floors with an outdoor terrace area.

Braunton Parish Council has recommended approval of the plans, which are currently awaiting a decision from North Devon Council.
