Bury St Edmunds Damson & Wilde in Abbeygate Street is open despite scaffolding, confirm Gusto Pronto





A town centre and bar and restaurant, recently taken over by a Suffolk pub chain, is open despite being covered in scaffolding.

David and Roxane Majoram, owners of the Gusto Pronto group, took over at Damson & Wilde in Bury St Edmunds town centre on November 15.

Confirming the venue in Abbeygate Street is open despite the work, David said it was ‘unfortunate timing’ as the scaffolding went up just as the husband and wife team started to welcome customers.

David said: “It is nothing to do with us, the property owner needed to make roof repairs due to an ongoing leak, which mainly affects the offices above.”

It is expected the scaffolding at the will be up at Damson & Wilde for the next three weeks.

The bar and restaurant is open from midday each day.

Scaffolding is currently being put up at Greggs in Abbeygate Street after campaigners drew attention to its state of disrepair.
