£2m Bank Holiday double for Bella Italia

May 05th

Bella Italia opened two new restaurants on Bank Holiday Monday (25 May 2015). A £950,000, 160-cover restaurant opened its doors in Ashton-under-Lyne, near Manchester; while Dudley opened a £1.05m, 180-cover restaurant on the same day.

Both sites are owned by Legal & General, and form part of Bella’s fast paced out-of-town retail and leisure park growth strategy.

The 4,000sq ft new build restaurant on Ashton Moss Leisure Park, which is served by the Manchester Metrolink tram system, is set to attract visitors to the scheme’s multi-screen cinema and bowling complex. The 5,000sq ft restaurant at Castlegate Leisure is located just off the busy A4123 Birmingham New Road, and is immediately adjacent to the busy Showcase cinema, Castlegate business park and Tesco Extra superstore.
