WIMPY could be on its way back to Bracknell and residents can’t wait.

Last week the News revealed planning documents have been sent to the council to open the restaurant in Princess Square.

Limited details are known at the moment, but it seems the sit-down eatery could be going in between Starbucks and The Card Factory at the mall.

Notorious for its sit-down fast-food provided on plates with knives and forks, Wimpy opened its first site in London in 1954 and became a global brand by 1970.

Bracknell News:

The chain had more than 500 locations in the UK at its commercial peak but just ten years later this number had fallen to 67, according to Vice.

This news excited dozens of residents, who told the News of their fond memories of the Wimpy that used to be in the old Bracknell town centre in the 1980s.

Theresa said Wimpy was “the best” while Chris said he had “great memories” of the restaurant.

Lots of other News readers reminisced about the food Wimpy had on offer.

Glenn said: “There were also massive full fry ups and grill options, even the Canadian breakfast options too.

Russell said Wimpy had the “best burgers ever”.

Others recalled the popular ‘Bender in a Bun’ favourite — a frankfurter sausage sliced and curled into a circle and placed in a burger bun.

Julia added: “We used to go in on a lunchtime from Garth and it was one of the few that opened on a Sunday when we skateboarded in the town as they would give us a glass of water.”
