Cupcakes and Bubbles, which served sweet treats alongside champagne, made the decision to close this summer as they experienced falling footfall in the area and pricey business rates.

They also said that they had felt the impact of the pedestrianisation of All Saints Green, which was completed in early 2017, and the temporary relocation of Primark from Gentleman's Walk to St Stephens Street.
