Work has started on a new Starbucks at the Atlantic Park site in Bideford. The new drive-thru, which is next to the new Aldi store and opposite McDonalds, is set to open this winter, according to a spokesman. In February, planning permission was granted to include a pizza outlet as part of this building, which was widely rumoured to be Dominos. However, a spokesman for the pizza chain said: Currently, we do not have an update on whether we will be opening a new store in the area. Work on the towns new Premier Inn and Brewers Fayre restaurant is also moving forward at a rapid place. The scaffolding is now down from the restaurant while the finishing touches are put on the hotel. Both are set to open in early 2017.
