Plans to open a new burger restaurant in the town centre have been shelved, with a food court featuring pizza, ice cream and Indo-Chinese food set to open instead.

New plans will need to be submitted, according to the council.

Reading Borough Council (RBC) approved plans in May to turn the former Ponden Home store at 10-12 Oxford Road into a restaurant called Burger Base.

The council granted approval for changes to signage and equipment fans.

But new advertisement signs at the unit have revealed plans to open a different restaurant at the site featuring three brands: Tuk Tuk Pizza, Oodles and Kream Stone.

The company behind the idea says it will be a food court with three restaurants and shared seating.

For the Oxford Road, Reading store Maz Foods Ltd has applied for permission for the proposed siting of extraction equipment and for advertisement consent for the signage.

Planning approval will be needed for the changes to the signage, according to the council.

A spokesman for RBC said: “Any change to the consented advertisements would require separate advertisement consent.”

Oodles has 35 franchises across the UK, including in Slough, London and Milton Keynes.

There is little information online about Tuk Tuk Pizza and Kream Stone.

Staff are currently being recruited for all three brands at the planned food court.
