Plans for former Really Rather Good café in Bury St Edmunds move forward with licensing application





A licensing application has been submitted for a former Bury St Edmunds café which is set to become an Italian eatery.

Delil Simsek has submitted proposed changes to licensable activities at 31 Abbeygate Street, the former Really Rather Good.

The application wants to amend the licence to authorise both on and off sales.

The opening and alcohol sales hours would also be amended.

SuffolkNews previously reported that an Italian trattoria and café is due to open at the site.

The owner of the new business currently owns Francela, on Angel Hill.

He was keen to reassure his current customers that the Italian eatery will be in addition to and not a replacement for Francela.

It was due to open before the end of July.

A plan of the premises with the licence application shows an area for performance of live music and eight tables.

Really Rather Good closed following the retirement of owners Annette and George Stanford, who ran the business for 10 years.
