Gourmet Burger Kitchen - Opening December 2015
 Back in 2001, three Kiwi guys set up the first Gourmet Burger Kitchen in Battersea, South London, changing the UK burger scene forever. Now with over 60 restaurants across the UK, we still pride ourselves on serving up a variety of handcrafted burgers, combining 100% prime beef, hand selected and traditionally reared on independent farms across the South West counties with the freshest ingredients and sauces made from scratch, every day, in each GBK kitchen.

Nando's - Opening December 2015
 Spice of life
Relax and have a great time with friends and family at Nando's – serving up legendary flame-grilled Peri-Peri chicken and a host of other menu options.
Nobody can resist the chicken at Nando's, and the convenience of our new restaurant will mean you can indulge whenever you want. It’s a fun place to start your night before heading to the cinema, while the fun, family-friendly atmosphere makes it a relaxing lunch option if you have little ones with you. Fancy a change? The menu’s not all about the Peri-Peri chicken – there are burgers, pittas, wraps, healthy salads and piled-high sharing platters.

Chiquito - Opening December 2015
All things Tex Mex
Chiquito are passionate about their food! Their dishes are made with the tastiest of ingredients, packed full of flavour to really tantalise your taste buds. From the moment you walk through their door you can expect a warm welcome, lively atmosphere and a burst of fantastic flavours.
Why we love it: take a look around and you’ll find a host of authentic features that capture the very essence of all things Tex Mex. Put all of this together and you’ve got a very vibrant and laid-back fiesta atmosphere.


Frankie & Benny's - Opening December 2015
Back to the 50s
If you fancy American and Italian 50s style food this is the place the go. The instantly recognisable red neon sign and warm inviting interior will ease you into the Frankie & Benny's experience before you can take your coat off! So what brings in the crowds? Is it their flavour packed burgers made with the finest beef, their tasty range of sandwiches; the succulent BBQ ribs - or is it the freshly made pizza cooked to order on a light and crispy base? Maybe it's the warmth of the welcome and the friendly service that makes everybody feel at home

Coast to Coast - Opening December 2015
American gastronomic adventure
Coast to Coast is an American restaurant and bar. Burgers are their speciality, made from premium British beef. Their pizzas are traditionally deep dish served Chicago style in the pan. For meat lovers, Coast to Coast steaks have truly distinctive flavour. If that’s not enough to get your taste-buds going, they also serve amazing seafood, wraps and South-Western specials too.

Bon Pan Asian - Opening December 2015
Authentic cuisine from the Far East
 Explore the tastes and aromas of Pan Asia. All the dishes are freshly prepared by skilled chefs using the finest ingredients, taking you on a journey through some of the world’s most exciting and tantalising cuisines. Bon Pan Asian has been designed with a relaxed but stylish environment so you can enjoy a whole new casual dining experience with a focus on exceptional customer service and food at an exceptional price.

Pizza Express - Opening 1 December 2015
A slice of perfection
From the legendary dough balls to the chocolate fudge cake, and not forgetting the unbeatable pizzas, the menu at our new Pizza Express will have you coming back time and time again.
Even the Observer's scathing restaurant critic, Jay Rayner, doesn't have a bad word to say about Pizza Express, which means this Italian-themed institution must be doing something right! The perfectly-cooked pizzas, tasty pasta dishes and tempting salads will leave you spoilt for choice. Calorie counting? Try the Leggera pizza menu – all under 500 calories and served with salad.
