After two years of business, a restaurant in Ely is changing its current format to a new burger eatery.

Inferno BBQ in Broad Street announced the news that the restaurant was closing in its current format on May 15, and that its sister company Forbidden Burger Co will be taking its place from May 25. 

A statement on social media read: “It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing the closing of Inferno BBQ in its current format. 

“There are a number of reasons from the dips and peaks Covid caused, supply issues stemming from driver shortages and increased pricing from suppliers would have seen a hike of prices beyond what we felt comfortable with.

“Our premises will be occupied soon with a branch of our sister company Forbidden Burger Co which, as well as its range of ‘flavours of the world’ burgers, will also be offering hot dogs, wings, loaded fries and thick shakes that you know and love from us at Inferno.” 

The statement thanked customers for their trade and staff for bringing the best experience to the restaurant. 

“We hope you will continue to support us in the new stage of our journey,” it read.
