The noodle bar has been placed on the property market and been marked as ‘Permanently closed’ on their official Facebook and Google Maps listings.

They had a prominent presence in the outdoor shopping complex for a total of four years and served original Asian noodles to hungry Hinckley residents looking to try something new.

The Asian-fusion restaurant opened up on 3 March 2016 by Hinckley’s then-town Mayor, Mrs. Janice Richards, and offered a dine-in, takeaway and delivery service – it comprised a unit adjacent to the Elbow Room Cider and Ale House micropub.

Fab served a rather mixed menu, such as their most notable menu item of Asian noodles, as well as burgers, chicken, chips, samosas, and veggie burgers.

Before their closure, they tried their hand at partnering up with two popular food delivery couriers, Deliveroo, and Just-Eat.

Letting opportunities

Whilst the future of the now-closed eatery is up in the air and has left many pondering the fate of the space, it has been placed on the market by property surveyors Wards under a ‘to let’ commercial use for potential occupants.

The unit is currently being arranged as a restaurant or café for potential lettings, however ‘alternative uses’ are being considered, depending on the planned use is suitable for the venue.

Potential occupants showing interest in the former-restaurant can discuss lettings and viewings for the property with chartered surveyor, Harry Ward, over the phone by calling 01455 251771, or by emailing
