Plans for a Diss building to be converted into a micro pub have been given the seal of approval by Diss Town Council.
The owner of The Hoxne Brewery, Dan Steggles, submitted plans to South Norfolk Council in December to change the former taxi office at Diss Railway Station to a micro pub.
In the applications, he stated he wanted to 'provide a place where customers can enjoy local ales, specialist brews and ciders' and somewhere people could have a 'conversation and interaction with the people who actually make the beer.'
The pub would not offer spirits, music system or a TV but would instead be a place to meet before or after travelling by train.
The planning committee at the town council said the application was a 'positive use of space'.
