Those due to open at the site include Loch Fyne, Las Iguanas, Wagamama and Café Rouge, as well as Hilton and Novotel hotels.

As of tomorrow (29 May) part-one of the development will be open to the public, including coffee chains Costa Coffee and Pret A Manger, as well as restaurants in retail outlets John Lewis and Debenhams.
