The owner of an American bar and grill in Melbourn which relocated because the rent was too high is inviting people to check out his new place in Swavesey.

Paul Herbert said he wanted to keep his diner Herbies closer to Royston after he moved out of the Melbourn restaurant in December, and was hoping for the A10 or A505, but to no avail.

He said: “It has been very hard to find somewhere and we wanted to stay close to Royston but there wasn’t any buildings that had A3 use up for rent at the time.

“We would love our friends from this area to come and try our new place and lots of them have already been on Facebook to say they are coming.”

Paul will be opening the restaurant at the old Little Chef building on the A14 in a couple of weeks time as they put the finishing touches to the new look.

Herbies fan Laura Whitford, who lives in Royston, said: “I’m so pleased that Herbies has found a new home, and that it’s close enough to visit and eat fajitas!”

They are also looking for staff to work there, and people can email the address above if interested.
