Saucy is closing if not already closed today.

"Permanently closed" status on Facebook - you wouldn't see it if you weren't looking for it and "This account doesn’t exist" on twitter.

Just vanished ... sad

Yes has permanently closed. No menu's to view, website doesn't work and should be open from yesterday but was not. Sad story but clearly wasn't profitable.

Blimey....that's a shame for the owners. 18 months of prep for 6 months of trading...

Sad news, didn't even go yet. Probably evidence it was burger joint saturation on the lane too. With GBK, Meat Liquor and the pubs too. A lot of competition.

Ah, a shame to lose this, but after the much delayed start it must have made the financials difficult.

They did a very good vegan burger.

If anyone is interested in good vegan burgers, I can recommend the one from the Picturehouse.

Best wishes to them.

I'd love something like Seacow to come back.

RIP Saucy. It's gutting when you've put so much time, energy and capital into it. But you learn, dust yourself down and move on.

It always seemed fairly busy when I passed by - which shows how tight margins are these days to make any eatery viable.

It's no consolation but I guess the work they did to get the building back to modern standards after the neglect with the Curry Cabin lease will benefit the next leaseholder.

Good luck to the team behind Saucy with their next endeavours.

Sign out front says closed due to serious illness and overseas relocation. Shame they couldn’t sell as a going concern.

If it is indeed true about the serious illness then thats very sad.
Am I correct in thinking they had some problem with their original chef injuring his hand and unable to work or something which delayed their trading? Or was that somewhere else?
I felt it was somewhat jinxed from the start.
we actually never went or felt any desire to go because of the food offering being limited to the burger and chip end of the spectrum which just never appealed.
Especially with GBK and Meatliquor on the same road had we fancied a burger (a VERY VERY rare occurrence in our household) we would have gone to Meatliquor.
It would be great if something to replace the much lamented Brickhouse opened in its place.
somewhere with great all day breakfasts, soups and salads.

You mean...gasp...somewhere on the Lane that sells simple, healthy food? Yeah that would be great as options are limited. But Signora, whilst not shouting loud about it does a brilliant job of that I find. Prices are reasonable too.

Yeah that's a real shame. Wouldn't blame anyone for relocating overseas at the moment.

Signora ?

Where’s that?

Next to Hisar.. Where Mon P'tit Chou used to be.

I agree, it's pretty good for a bowl of pasta (with or without kids) and a salad etc...
