Bourgee returns with Norwich opening

After going into administration and closing three sites back in the spring of this year, Bourgee has announced the opening of a new site in Norwich.

Due to open on 12 November on Timberhill, the new site will be spread over two floors, with a restaurant downstairs and a Bites-Bar-Luxe Lounge offering drinks and tapas upstairs.

It will continue the brand’s ethos of affordable luxury.

The brand is now being led solely by founders James Welling and Mark Baumann, following the departure of two directors.

“We have undergone a lot of change in the last year which has been a difficult time for us all, but we see the launch of Bourgee in Norwich as a significant moment for the brand,” says Welling. “A chance for us to show exactly what Bourgee stands for and deliver our vision as a duo with full effect. This is Bourgee 2.0 and we know the brand is better than ever!

“We saw huge success for Bourgee in Essex and Suffolk, but are delighted to be expanding into Norfolk and can’t wait to show the people of Norwich what we have to offer. Norwich is a bustling city that is thriving and we are excited to be bringing a high quality dining experience that will rival the ‘experience’ residents and visitors would expect of London, right at home.

“Norwich is constantly evolving and we are excited to be a part of the growth that will see the city further become a key destination within the UK.”

Further sites have been secured in Essex and are expected to open in 2019.
