Pub chain JD Wetherspoons has sparked controversy after announcing it plans to open the first licensed bar and restaurant at a motorway service station.
The pub will open at junction 2 of the M40 at Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire. The plans have however been heavily criticised by health charities who say it 'sends the wrong message'.
In a statement Wetherspoons Chairman Tim Martin says the £2 million project which will create 50 jobs is 'an exciting new development'.
“We are looking forwardto opening our first licensed bar and restaurant on the motorwaynetwork.
“The company has alwaysbeen innovative and this is an exciting new development for us.
“Hopefully it will bethe first of many Wetherspoon’s on the Motorway.”
