DOUGH&co and Burger Amour restaurants prepare to open at Thetford Riverside




Two new restaurants are to open at a town's leisure complex on Monday.

Pizza and burger venues DOUGH&co and Burger Amour will operate alongside each other at Thetford Riverside.

They are owned by Chris Sharman, who gained experience working as a chef in Michelin star restaurants.

He started his pizza business from a converted horse box in 2015, but has since opened seven restaurants including in Colchester and Bury St Edmunds.

Mr Sharman said the location was a 'dream come true' and although it had taken a while to launch the latest branch, it had made them 'even more excited to open and provide the people in Thetford with the best quality food and service'.

The leisure complex, which is home to a cinema and hotel, is owned and managed by Breckland Council.

Cllr Paul Hewett, executive member for property and projects at the authority, added: “I'm truly delighted to see the outstanding preparation work that has gone in by Chris and his team to establish two brand new restaurants.

"As lockdown restrictions ease, it’s the ideal time for residents and visitors to Breckland to visit the stunning riverside in Thetford, meet up with friends or celebrate with loved ones, whilst enjoying a fantastic meal out."
