Bill's to open new restaurant at Manchester's Trafford Centre

Casual dining group Bill's is to open a new site at the intu shopping park the Trafford Centre, in Manchester.

The 2,600 sq ft unit will open in autumn, and be located in the New Orleans dining quarter, which is inspired by the famous US city and includes a statue of a jazz band. It will include a mezzanine space, and also feature external seating.

The venue will join over 60 other restaurants, cafes and bars at the centre, including JD Wetherspoon and live music venue the Bandstand, plus Barburrito, Las Iguanas, Nando's, TGI Friday's, Carluccio's, Brewer's Fayre, Five Guys, and the recently-refurbished Café Rouge, Gourmet Burger Kitchen, and Zizzi.

Sites from other restaurant groups Coast to Coast, and Wagamama, are also set to open nearby in the autumn.

The Trafford Centre also features over 200 shops, and sees footfall of 31 million a year.

A spokesperson from Bill's Restaurant said: "As well as its retail, intu Trafford Centre is well known for its dining and leisure attractions. It has one of the highest footfalls of any shopping centre outside London, making it the obvious choice for a new Bill's restaurant."

Cushman & Wakefield acted for intu.

Originally started by a fruit and veg salesman from Lewes, Sussex, Bill's is now directed by former Caprice Holdings managing director Andy Bassadone, and has over 60 sites across the UK.
