A closed pizza restaurant in Slough town centre could be converted into a late night kitchen and bar.

Pizza Express in Slough High Street has permanently closed recently. Now, the restaurant could be converted into a restaurant and nightclub.

A licensing application viewable on Slough Borough Council’s website states that new owners want to sell alcohol, food and play recorded music.

These activities could go on until 3am on Fridays and Saturdays, and until midnight on each other day of the week.

The application has been submitted by Heritage Kitchen & Bar Ltd.

There is a Heritage Foods African & Caribbean Convenience Store located immediately next to the closed Pizza Express, which is an off licence that sells alcohol, tropical foods and frozen meat, fish and poultry.

There is also a Heritage Kitchen & Bar at a precinct in Hounslow.

Photos uploaded on Google for the site in London show guests enjoying African cuisine and a range of spirits and cocktails.

It is understood the convenience store in Slough and the bar in London are connected, as both sites have the same branding.

The Heritage Kitchen & Bar takeover of the closed Pizza Express was submitted as a licensing application to Slough Borough Council in the last few weeks.
