It only emerged this week that the city was to welcome a new burger restaurant – but now it appears it will, in fact, be attracting two.

News broke on Monday that American chain Five Guys is set to move into the former Pizza Hut building on Orford Place, Norwich.

Now, another burger chain, London-based Byron Hamburgers, has lodged an application to open a restaurant in one of the units of Chapelfield shopping centre.

The chain of restaurants was founded in London in 2007, by Tom Byng, who developed a flavour for burgers while at university in America.

The first Byron was opened on Kensington High Street, London,

As part of the application it outlines opening hours of 11am until 12.30am, seven days a week, serving alcohol as well as food.

While at this stage there is no confirmed opening date, the application asks for the premises licence to start as soon as possible. It will now by up to the council to decide whether the plans can go ahead.

Paul McCarthy, general manager of intu Chapelfield: 'Byron is a popular, family-friendly restaurant brand and we're pleased to welcome them to intu Chapelfield's vibrant dining offer – it gives customers another great reason to visit.'

It cannot be confirmed at this stage which unit the restaurant will occupy.

Previously, the closest Byron restaurant to the city was in Bury St Edmunds.
