Klondyke ups restaurant offer with 25% turnover plan

The Klondyke Group has rolled out another improved restaurant, this time at Brookside Garden Centre in Poynton, Cheshire.

Klondyke said the new build restaurant is part of an ongoing redevelopment project of the full garden centre site and offers a dining experience for 220 covers.
Continuing the modern design style recently introduced by Klondyke, the new restaurant offers both counter and waitress service and offers a regionally inspired menu, with fabulous changing daily specials. Thirty new jobs have been created through the opening.
The restaurant at Brookside follows an active redevelopment programme of the restaurant portfolio within the Klondyke Group, with new restaurants opening at Daleside, Lady Green and Houghton Hall Garden Centres within the last 18 months.
Restaurants now account for 22% of group sales and this is likely to increase to 25%.
The group plans to continue with its investment into restaurants, with future development at Weaver Vale, Polmont and Edinburgh centres.
Group catering manager Keren Feeney commented "I am delighted that our newest restaurant is now open and is already receiving some brilliant feedback from our customers on the delicious food, service and atmosphere. We pride ourselves on serving the very best of home made meals using local produce and once again this has proven to be what our customers, new and old, are looking for."
