Plans for a new bar by a nationwide pub chain in Glasgow Central Station have been cancelled, the company has confirmed.

A Wetherspoon bar planned for the station has been shelved by the firm, Glasgow Live reports.

The chain had been given permission to open a new outlet in the site of the former Central Bar on the second floor of the station concourse in July 2018.

The pub had even been named The Dugald Drummond, in homage to the Ardrossan-born steam locomotive engineer and founder of the Glasgow Railway Engineering Company.

In June 2019, a variation to the licence was approved to allow the sale of alcohol at the premises.

The new bar would have been able to hold 226 people, with plans to extend capacity further in the future.

The Dugald Drummon would have been the latest addition to Wetherspoon’s portfolio of pubs in Glasgow’s city centre, which includes The Counting House, The Hengler's Circus and The Crystal Palace.
