The update comes after water filled the car park before penetrating the restaurant in Downham Market in the middle of June.

And, at one stage, all internal areas of the restaurant were under 30cm’s of water.

Posting on their Facebook page, Arbuckles wrote: “We know we’re still closed and you’re just waiting for us to open again.
