A NEW restaurant is opening its doors in Taunton next weekend.

West Country chain Hubbox will be opening its North Street location on October 5.

The new restaurant takes the place of former Roots Cafe and Red-Hot Razzberry and has brought 35 new jobs to town.


OPENING SOON: Work taking place at the new Taunton restaurant

HUBBOX founder Richard Boon said: "We can’t wait to bring HUBBOX to Taunton. It brings back many happy childhood memories, watching cricket with my dad. Taunton holds a special place in my heart.

“On the menu will be a selection of HUBBOX favourites including the National Burger Award-winning Big Kahuna and our gourmet hotdogs. We’re also excited to be introducing new dishes cooked on our charcoal grill, offering a HUBBOX take on surf and turf. We hope to bring some of Cornwall’s beach barbecue vibes to buzzy Taunton retaining our welcoming, relaxed environment.”

Having opened in the harborside town of St Ives in 2003, the last 15 years has seen HUBBOX build strong relationships with the West Country producers.
