THE launch of a new American-style restaurant by Littleport businesswoman Corrine Yendle has been postponed, it was announced this week.
Cadillac Jack’s was due to open in Mildenhall’s High Street on April 16 but the launch has been pushed back due to “unforeseen circumstances”.
A spokesman for Punch Taverns, which part-owns the business said: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, the opening of Cadillac Jack’s has been postponed until further notice.”
Australian Corrine opened the Littleport Steakhouse in 2012, revamping the former Plough and Harrow pub and serving up a range of exotic meats including crocodile, kangaroo and zebra.
The restaurant became a popular fixture locally and, little more than a year on, Corrine announced she was looking to transform the fortunes of another pub, The White Hart, in Mildenhall’s High Street.

Together with Punch Taverns, which owns the property, Corrine invested £150,000 in transforming the former pub into Cadillac Jack’s, an American Western-style restaurant and bar, creating 20 jobs.
A new menu was created and was set to feature a variety of different steaks as well as exotic meats like zebra, kangaroo, wildebeest and water buffalo.

Licensee Corrine, who previously owned two restaurants in Australia before moving to Littleport, said: “Like, the Littleport Steakhouse, I wanted to come up with a concept that no one else had thought of and knowing how popular exotic meats had become in Australia, I was confident it would work in the UK and wanted to introduce this to Mildenhall.”
