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 McDonald's, 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 Domino's.

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 town's 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.
