Cupola House looks set to become a new branch of the new Essex-based steak and lobster restaurant chain Bourgee.

The Bury Free Press has requested confirmation from Bourgee in Southend, but the company’s founder Mark Baumann has tweeted a picture of the newly restored, fire damaged historic building in The Traverse, Bury St Edmunds.

He wrote: “Scaffolding nearly off Bourgee Bury St. Eds too! Who likes this splendid building?”

On the company’s website they are advertising for staff, from a general manager downwards, for Bury and another new branch in Chelmsford.

Cupola House, built as a home in 1693, was seriously damaged by fire in 2012, when it was a Strada restaurant. A major reconstruction, overseen by the architects Purcell, has just been completed which marries modern fire prevention and safety equipment with restored and recreated historic features, including a recreation of the building’s iconic central oak staircase.
