New restaurants are set to open at Daventry’s flagship Mulberry Place cinema development in time for the Easter holidays.
West Northamptonshire Council has leased the two restaurant units at the £12.5m development to DOUGH&Co Woodfired Pizza and Burger Amour.
The pizza and burger restaurants are both part of chains run by Suffolk-based restaurateur Chris Sharman, who operates in more than a dozen locations around the east of England.
Offering fresh, authentic food with a relaxed informal atmosphere, the restaurants will also create 50 new jobs for the local area.
Chris Sharman, CEO of DOUGH&Co Woodfired Pizza and Burger Amour told Embrace Radio: “
We’re delighted to announce our new restaurants at the fantastic new Mulberry Place development in Daventry.”“
“We offer a very relaxed, informal atmosphere and take real care and pride in the food that we serve. Our wood-fired pizza for instance, is made in our own way, with our own recipe sauce and dough cooked by our real chefs.”
“Daventry has a great feel to it and it’s really exciting to be part of this new leisure development. We can’t wait to welcome our first customers.
The new restaurants will join The Arc Cinema, a four-screen complex which will offer digital laser projectors, state-of-the-art immersive surround sound systems and luxury electric recliner seats as standard when it opens to the public on Friday 4 March.
Developed by the Council, the new Mulberry Place development, based off North Street in the heart of Daventry town centre, also boasts a new public square with decorative fountains.
Cllr Lizzy Bowen, WNC’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Town Centre Regeneration and Growth said: “
This is an incredibly exciting time for the people of Daventry, with the state-of-the-art new cinema set to open on 4 March, followed by these fantastic new restaurants around a month later.”
