A pub and restaurant at Garon Park?

The Echo is carrying an article today revealing that a brewery chain is in Advanced talks with Southend Council to build a new pub and restaurant on the site which is currently used for overflow parking for Kids Kingdom.

The location is a bit intriguing, especially as the old Rusty Bucket gave up the ghost nearby years ago through lack of custom. Could it be that building a stadium at Fossetts Farm may yet become a reality sooner rather than later?

A new pub at Garon Park might be marginally closer than the Railway, but if it were to turn out like the Saxon King then I doubt they would really welcome football fans.

To be fair, didn't the Rusty Bucket cease to be before Garons was built? Makes a lot of sense to me, there's nothing pub-like for miles is there?

The echo picture shows the land to be that bit of concrete before the buildings where the travellers parked up on last year.
Not sure exactly where you mean but kids kingdom was built next to Trinity which has been there many years.
