Bourgee Restaurant in Bury St Edmunds closes

Bourgee Restaurant, at Cupola House, in Bury St Edmunds, has suddenly closed, a year after it opened.

The restaurant chain, which has also closed sites in Essex, has been placed into administration, and in a statement the founding directors apologised to customers.

The Bury restaurant opened its doors in May last year at Cupola House in the Traverse.

The Grade I-listed building, which was previously home to Strada restaurant, was fully restored after being destroyed by fire in June 2012.

A statement from Bourgee directors James Welling and Mark Baumann read: “Following a protracted dispute and lengthy discussions between all parties – it is with sadness that we can confirm the Bourgee Restaurants located in Southend, Chelmsford and Bury St Edmunds have now closed.

“Despite exhaustive efforts to purchase and retain all venues, a way forward could not be agreed. As a consequence the ownership of these restaurants has passed to a new owner.

“We understand that the sudden closures have left customers confused and disappointed. We sincerely apologise for this.”

Ensors Accountants confirmed they took over the administration of Bourgee Restaurants last week.
