Adnams opens shop and café in Bury St Edmunds

15 October, 2015

Adnams has opened a shop and café in Bury St Edmunds.

The store sells Adnams’ beers, wines and spirits alongside kitchenware and gifts, and is the Southwold brewer’s second outlet to include a café.

It is sited in a historic building in Cornhill near Bury’s popular Buttermarket, and is managed by manager Tom Crittenden and assistant manager Tom Legge.

Adnams retail head Neil Griffin said: “Bury St Edmunds was a natural choice for us when we set about opening a new store in the west of the county. We’re really excited to be here and it is an area we have earmarked for a long time. Located in the heart of the bustling market town, there is a great array of independent shops, as well as high street chains, nearby.

“The new store will offer everything you would expect from an Adnams shop, with the addition of a café, which serves local produce, simply prepared along with recommended drinks pairings.”

Marketing director Emma Hibbert added: “The opening weekend was a huge success with the store team welcoming both locals and visitors to the town. Bury St Edmunds is a fantastic location for our latest Adnams store and we are looking forward to a busy festive season.”

Adnams now has 12 Cellar & Kitchen stores in Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex and Lincolnshire.
