New Costa Coffee: now The Fieldfare opens

New Hungry Horse pub, the Fieldfare, opened its doors for the first time on Thursday 19th March on Norwich’s Broadland Business Park.

The pub has created around 50 full and part-time jobs and has opened shortly after the arrival of an adjacent Costa Drive-thru restaurant, further enhancing the food and hospitality offering on the expanding business park.

Adam Smith, director of Lothbury Investment Management, owners of Broadland Business Park has welcomed the opening of The Fieldfare on the Park said: "We wish Greene King and the new team at The Fieldfare good luck with the new pub and restaurant. We are very pleased that they have chosen Broadland Business Park for the opening of the new Hungry Horse outlet. With the recent completion of the adjacent Costa Drive-thru and now The Fieldfare, it has provided the Park with superb additions to the facilities for people working there, visitors and residents."

The opening of the two outlets comes hot on the heels of a number of new office lettings on the Park, including award-winning national accountants network, TaxAssist who have moved into a suite of 5,033ft2 (468m2) on the second floor of the Bankside 300 building and energy business, RWE, who have taken the 3,630ft2 (337m2) first floor suite of Lakeside 200. In addition, Persimmon Homes Anglia is set to construct a new three storey 9,000 sq ft purpose-designed head office for 50 staff at the Park.

The Fieldfare was named by local resident Jennie Layton after her memories of fieldfare birds flying out of trees when she used to do cross country runs near the site.

Jay Jones, manager of the Fieldfare, said: “We are really excited to get our doors open and show the local community their new pub. We also want to extend an invitation to those who work on the business park. We have a new menu with more variety for those looking for a lighter bite that would be perfect for people’s lunch break.”

James Allen of the Park’s retained agents, Roche Chartered Surveyors, said: “The Costa Coffee and the Hungry Horse family pub and restaurant will add to the attraction of Broadland Business Park. Interest remains high and the recent lettings to major businesses underline the importance of Broadland Business Park as one of Norwich’s key business locations.”
