A new coffee shop will be coming to a major route in and out Norfolk after plans for the drive-thru were approved.

The proposal to build a coffee shop, restaurant and drive-thru at Thetford service station west, on the A11, has been approved by Breckland Council.

The plans, submitted by Motor Fuel Limited, do not state what the new business will be called but it describes the branding as being a mix of white and western red. It is understood that it will be a Costa Coffee outlet.

Motor Fuel Limited is partnered with the UK's most popular coffee chain Costa. The service station currently has a Costa Express but not a full-sized outlet.

Currently the site has a BP petrol station, Greggs and Stone Willy's Kitchen.

The plans were recommend for approval by a case officer from the council who said: "It would provide employment opportunities within the district and enhance service facilities available along the A11."
