A former restaurant is set to reopen in a Suffolk town centre - with a new takeaway, too.
MSS Properties has submitted plans to East Suffolk Council for the premises on the corner of High Street and Cross Street in Leiston.
The company wants to change the use of the building to a restaurant and hot food takeaway including installation of an external flue.
The premises had been operating as the Leiston Tandoori. It was previously a large public house known as the Black Horse and operated under that name from 1865 to around 2005, before becoming a freehouse known as The Kingfisher and later became the Indian restaurant.
Last December the premises were put up for sale by auction with a guide price of £225,000 to £275,000.
