A city centre cafe has closed after its lease was forfeited. 

The Departure Lounge, near Norwich Rail Station, specialised in breakfasts, light bites and coffees for travellers. 

The Rose Lane cafe opened in 2016 and once claimed to have "probably the best bacon roll in the world".

It states that the current lease has "demised" and the landlord has re-entered the property, with all goods left inside ready to be collected by February 5 or else they will be destroyed.

The notice is from Wilson & Roe, a firm that helps collect outstanding debts and regain control of business premises. 

It is unknown exactly when the Departure Lounge closed its doors for the last time but it launched a bid with Norwich City Council to open in the evenings and serve alcoholic drinks as recently as 2021. 

The cafe was closed for a few weeks in April 2019 for a refurbishment. Its Instagram profile has not been updated since last May.
