It feels so good to be back and, along with the return of non-essential shopping, we have worked in partnership with the restaurants on Chantry Square to extend outdoor seating, following the latest relaxation in requirements for social distancing.

Visitors can now enjoy dining al fresco in groups of up to six people or two households at wagamama, Ask Italian and Byron. The outdoor seating space has almost doubled for these restaurants at the Centre. Plus, YO! has two tables outside.

We caught up with our General Manager, Paul McCarthy, who said: “We have been working really hard to support all our retailers and restaurants with their reopening plans, so that visitors can enjoy a spot of outdoor dining when they visit Chantry Place. Plus, they will all get to spot our new giant rainbow when dining al fresco, which is raising money for the NHS. It is fantastic to welcome people back to the Centre and we are reminding everyone about our safety measures when they visit, so that they all feel safe and confident visiting, shopping and dining at Chantry Place. Many of our stores also have sales or offers on to welcome customers back.”

Other restaurants and food and drink stores inside the Centre are open for takeaway and delivery, with the return of seated customers indoors hopefully from Monday 17th May 2021.
