The ‘under offer’ sign was spotted atop the property today (23 June).

The space is being marketed by Wards, who are a Station Road-based chartered surveyors and estate agents.

It has sat vacant for a total of two years since Rossini’s Restaurant shut their doors for good in March 2019, after the property was hit with two arson attacks.

Following Rossini’s departure, Leicester-based Indian eatery, Santhi, announced that they were eyeing up the space, but ultimately their plans fell through, and nothing ever came of them.

Whilst it has been marketed as a restaurant from its previous use on letting website listings, Wards have said that alternative uses ‘can be considered’ for the two-storey restaurant.

If anything does come of these plans and a new occupant is found, they would be the newest occupant to join the retail and leisure complex.

The last eatery that Wards welcomed in to the town were Nid’s Kitchen who opened in The Borough at the back of an old bank, who opened following the eased lockdown restrictions.

The Free Press have approached Wards for comment at the time of publication (23 June), but have not yet heard back from them.
