The Leicester branch of a UK restaurant chain has closed permanently, it has been confirmed to LeicestershireLive. Bill’s Restaurant, in Shires Lane, has closed its doors for the final time.
The Highcross eatery, which opened for the first time in 2015, has remained in darkness over recent days, with furniture and other items piled up inside. Now, the chain has told LeicestershireLive that it will not be opening again.
A spokesperson said: “Our Leicester site is now permanently closed. We have loved being part of the community and it we will miss it greatly.”
No reason for the closure was given. The all day dining spot served brunch dishes such as Bill’s big brunch and classic eggs benedict with fries, and mains including lobster and seafood linguine and Bill’s classic burger.
The Bill’s Restaurant chain was founded in 2001 by greengrocer Bill Collison – who initially opened a shop and café in Lewes. The Leicester branch has now been removed from both the Bill’s website and the Highcross shopping centre website.
