New to Bury St Edmunds

Posted on Wednesday, 9th December, 2015

Bury St Edmunds has one of the lowest vacancy rates in the country with only 5.4% of empty units in the town centre. With a number of new shops and restaurants in Bury St Edmunds opening their doors, it’s easy to see why. This is due to some very exciting new restaurants in Bury St Edmunds as well as shops open over the last few months. So if you're looking for somewhere new to shop or eat over the next few months, take a look at some of the fantastic new businesses, that have arrived in our thriving market town.

Edmundo Lounge

Loungers was founded in 2002 by a trio of friends that spent years in the restaurant and bar trade. Following their success in other towns and cities across the country including Bristol, Newcastle and Brighton, the team were ready to start a new venture by launching a restaurant in Bury St Edmunds.

Home to a very tasty brunch menu, a selection of proper burgers and a great selection of tapas for all food lovers, Edmundo Lounge is an intriguing food led café/bar where families, friends, locals and our dogs can come for a coffee, something to eat or a drink in the evening. 

Guat’s Up!

From the local speciality coffee roaster, Butterworth and Son comes Guat’s Up! Serving a range of tea and coffee in the day and selected cocktails, beer and wine at night, the new café/bar is looking to bring something a little different to the town. Find out more by visiting the Facebook page.


New to the Bury St Edmunds shopping streets is luxury British fashion retailer Jigsaw. The womenswear brand sells stylish clothes in inspiring surroundings at its Abbeygate Street store. The company cherishes the opportunity to make beautiful, stunning and long-lasting clothes that you can wear for years to come. 


Artico sells women’s, men’s and Children's jewellery ranges, along with many different styles of charm bracelets and cufflinks. Most of the range is 925 Sterling Silver, with beautiful jewellery collections from Lovelinks, Hot Diamonds, Storm (Watches), White Ice and more also on offer.
