Multiple operator Kurnia Lesiure has sold the Kai's Bar Louth to JD Wetherspoon — who plan to invest £1.5m redeveloping the site.

Multiple operator Kurnia Lesiure has sold the Kai's Bar Louth to JD Wetherspoon.

Kurnia boss Michael Kheng shut the venue on New Year's Day and today confirmed its sale to Wetherspoon.

The group had purchased the site in 2000 but has been sold after Kurnia announced it would downsize its sites from seven to four.

"We have been in discussions with JD Wetherspoon for some time now but contractually have not been able to make any comments on who the new owners may be until today," said Kheng.

"It is great to see a company such as JD Wetherspoon express an interest in Louth and shall look forward to when it opens."

Wetherspoon spokesman Eddie Gershon said: "We are delighted to have acquired Kai's Bar Louth and look forward to redeveloping it and opening it as a Wetherspoon outlet in the coming months."
