A popular bar in the heart of Romford has closed but a new restaurant will be opening in its place.
Missoula, in South Street, shut its doors at the weekend following a “closing party” but will re-open as a branch of restaurant and bar chain Slug and Lettuce.
Taking to Missoula’s Facebook page, a member of staff said it’s currently closed for refurbishments and are looking to expand its team.
Missoula and Slug and Lettuce are both owned by Stonegate Pub Company.
Missoula in Chelmsford also announced it was closing last weekend, following the death of a 20-year-old student who was crushed trying to get into the bar in Durham on February 7.
A Slug and Lettuce spokeswoman said: “The redevelopment of this site has been months in the planning with a sparkling new Slug and Lettuce set to open its doors in mid-March.
“We will share more details as soon as we are able to.”
