A much-loved west Suffolk coffee shop has closed as the owners announced they are retiring. 

Annette and George Stanford had run Really Rather Good in Bury St Edmunds for almost 10 years.

The coffee shop, in Abbeygate Street, closed down for the final time over the Easter bank holiday weekend. 

A statement on the coffee shop's website reads: "George and Annette have retired. The coffee shop is now permanently closed."

Speaking about the closure, chief executive of Our Bury St Edmunds Mark Cordell said: "It's always sad to see a business close in Bury St Edmunds but it's been a pleasure working with Annette and George and I want to wish them all the best during their retirement."

Mr Cordell said he believes a new independent business will be opening in the unit in the future.

It comes as another historic shop in Bury St Edmunds closed its doors on Tuesday

Denny Bros Supplies Ltd, in St Andrew’s Street South, had been a mainstay of the west Suffolk town for the past 80 years. 

The family-run shop, which was popular among arts and crafters, first opened in the town back in 1945.
