Danny’s sports Bar and Grill plans to open in the venue formerly occupied by Wild Lime, and in years gone by The Priory. The business has applied to Cherwell District Council (CDC) for an alcohol licence from 10am – 11pm Sunday – Thursday and 10am – 12.30am on Fridays and Saturdays. A film licence for the same times has also been applied for.

The pizza house application relates to a former betting shop at 10, Broad Street. Mr U Rajarapu, a Birmingham business man, has applied for change of use to a restaurant and takeaway, believed to be a branch of the Fireaway group. The business would employ three full time and two part time staff.
