Work to construct a brand new Premier Inn and Brewers Fayre restaurant in Bideford is due to start this spring.

The hotel will be built on the Atlantic Park site, where a brand new McDonald's opened last year.

It is due to be completed in early 2017, Whitbread confirmed.

Plans for a Starbucks, Aldi and 100 new houses at the site off Clovelly Road are currently still awaiting a decision by Torridge District Council.
