A Sudbury restaurant – the subject of a failed expansion bid – has been forced to close less than a year after being launched.
Blaze Grill opened in Station Road in June and offered a range of steaks and burgers.
But on Wednesday, when the restaurant was due to open, its doors remained closed, with a notice explaining it had ceased operating.
In a statement, the restaurant’s management said: “It is with great sadness and regret that we have now closed our doors for the last time.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have supported us and have dined with us.”
The building, which was formerly Hitchcock’s restaurant, had stood empty for a number of years before being renovated.
Last month, Blaze Grill was unsuccessful in an attempt to open a wine bar on its first-floor. These plans were turned down by Babergh District Council after neighbours claimed it would result in increased noise.
Following the hearing, restaurant manger Stuart Squires suggested the business would return with new proposals and gave no indication of the impending closure.
