Exciting Changes For Ipswich High Street

Late last year, popular sandwich chain Pret a Manger confirmed their move to the old Grimwades building on the Cornhill. Works are due to be completed in line with the re-opening of the Cornhill itself in late October/early November. 

Chocoholics are revelling in the announcement that luxury chocolatier Hotel Chocolat is moving into the old Accessorise premises on Tavern Street this month. The chain - famed for having its own cocoa plantation in Saint Lucia - will open the doors to its second Suffolk store (joining Bury St Edmunds) in mid-September.

Colchester-based pub Three Wise Monkeys are expanding their empire by opening a branch in Ipswich. The former Lloyds Tavern is being transformed into the company's trademark American BBQ restaurant and bar, complete with three storeys of food, drink and events. An opening date has not yet been set, but along with the other exciting changes to the Cornhill, we are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for our town centre!
