A fast-growing restaurant chain could be moving in to Huntingdon, under plans submitted to the district council.
Loungers, which has more than 100 venues across the UK, has applied for an alcohol licence to Huntingdonshire District Council.
The chain was founded in 2002 in Bristol and has enjoyed rapid growth since then, with outlets in Birmingham, Nottingham, Peterborough, and Manchester among others.
The firm has also advertised for a head chef and general manager for the premises.
A spokesman for the firm said that, subject to securing successful planning consent, the firm proposed to open a new Lounge in spring next year.

Its opening hours will be daily from 8am until 30 minutes after the end of its proposed alcohol licence times.
