A new steakhouse and cocktail bar looks set to open near a Suffolk town centre. 

Signs for a new business in Sudbury have been put in place and were spotted over the weekend. 

Franco's, a new restaurant serving steak and fish cuisine as well as having its own cocktail bar, will open in the former Boathouse restaurant in Cross Street. 

The signs also say "Good Food. Good Mood" and "Drink and enjoy".

Last month signs for a Mediterranean eatery appeared outside the building

The location of the new restaurant is the site of the former Boathouse, which closed in September last year

The restaurant shut suddenly, with tenants saying the decision was not down to the cost of living crisis.

They said it was as a "result of behind the scene matters".

The restaurant is in a prime spot in the town with lovely views of the water meadows and the River Stour. 

It is not yet clear when the new Franco's restaurant will open in Sudbury.
