Starbucks has addressed rumours it could open another café in Hedge End.

Rumours have been flying about the potential arrival of the coffee shop near Wickes in Manaton Way.

This is only a few minutes’ drive from the existing Starbucks in Hedge End Retail Park.

It comes after catering company Only Foods And Sauces Southampton made a post on Facebook.

It reads: “Only Foods And Sauces will be moving to Brickfield Lane, Chandler’s Ford, starting April 2.

“Due to [the] landlord of Wickes Hedge End putting a Starbucks there.

“Sorry for any inconvenience but [this is] beyond my control.”

But Starbucks did not officially confirm if a new coffee shop was on the horizon.

A spokesperson said: “We are always looking for new locations and opportunities to bring the Starbucks experience to customers in the UK, but at this time we have no updates to share about plans in Hedge End.”

The global coffee chain confirmed it is "always looking for new locations".
