A second Nando’s restaurant is on its way to Ipswich - taking over the Pizza Hut site on Ransomes Europark.

The spicy chicken chain’s new eatery, on The Sandlings, will join their Cardinal Park offering in the town, although a date has not yet been set for the big opening.

The restaurant chain submitted paperwork to Ipswich Borough Council on Thursday, December 21, to conduct alterations to the entrance of the building as well as adjustments to the building’s roof line.

Although the building will remain mostly unchanged, Nando’s look to give it a lick of paint and extend the roof.

It comes as Pizza Hut confirmed it is set to close the doors on its Ransomes Europark site on Saturday, January 20.

A spokesman for Pizza Hut said: “We continually evaluate the location of our restaurants to ensure they are in the best possible areas to meet consumer demand and have decided to close our restaurant in Euro Retail Park on January 20 at 10pm.

“We will continue to have a strong presence in Ipswich however, and customers can visit our other Huts at The Interchange Retail Park and Anglia Parkway South.

“We have informed all our team members and are currently in discussions with them about relocating to our other restaurants in the local area, where possible.”

The new Nando’s restaurant will share a car park with the Burger King drive-through next door.
