The Ely Road venue is set to become GGs Italian Restaurant with fresh pasta made daily on site by a couple who previously ran a successful restaurant in Tuscany.

Casey Yendle, director, said: “Littleport Steakhouse has been operating successfully for just shy of four years.

“In the last two years we have opened three more steak houses and the Pancake and Waffle Shack near Mildenhall.

“We as a family, and our amazing team around us, needed to make a decision moving forward. Do we go with our hearts and revamp the restaurant, or go with our heads and do something completely different?”
