Pret a Manger has issued a statement about a move into a former late night chicken takeaway in Sheffield.

The upmarket sandwich chain responded nine days after a query from The Star about a hint it was planning to open at 35 Cambridge Street. Pret had been showing the address as one of its shops on its website.

The unit was occupied by Chicken Bar until 2018 when regeneration works started. It is now a prominent corner unit in the city council’s £470m Heart of the City regeneration project.

A spokesperson for Pret a Manger said there were “currently” no plans for a shop at the site.

The decision may be a disappointment for council chiefs who are trying to fill more than a dozen empty spaces within the new scheme. But operators of the 20 kitchens in the new food hall on Cambridge Street may be relieved.
