The £2.7m project, in Kings Head Yard by Mere Street in Diss, had been scheduled for completion in 2018 but were stalled by revised plans by the pub giant to review costs.
Town Council clerk Sarah Richards told councillors at a meeting on Wednesday that the works are scheduled for around March time despite originally hearing the would start in January.
Councillor Trevor Wenman, town mayor, said: 'Wetherspoons is coming to town, which is good news.'
