The Trust have said that it will open sometime this Autumn after an ambitious August target date came and went with builders, not diners, still in situ.

“It’s fair to say that an August opening date was always going to be a best case scenario, had all building matters been straightforward” said Jason, who was brought onto the project last month, “but what’s important is that the end product is exactly as we want it to be.

“It’s going to be modern, relaxed and down to earth, the sort of place you can take your family during the day and then at night, it’ll be more aimed at couples.

“The days of Italians or steakhouses are pretty much over, we’re going to offer good, affordable bistro-style food, all seasonal, with a range of dishes. We want the food to be healthy, without going overboard.

“We can’t wait to open the doors to everyone and get going.”
