Gourmet Burger Kitchen and Riva Lounge to open at Flemingate

Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK) and Riva Lounge will be opening restaurants at Flemingate, the retail and leisure development, which opened in Beverley, East Yorkshire in November 2015.

GBK is set to open a 3,756sq ft restaurant in June with 106 covers. It will be adjacent to the six-screen 1,000-seat Parkway Cinema.

While independent operator Riva Lounge will open a 116-cover restaurant, in a 3,650sq ft site in May. The restaurant is described as an authentic European lounge and café bar and was founded by Shaun and Julie Thompson.

Dominic Gibbons, managing director of Wykeland Group, said: "Gourmet Burger Kitchen and Riva Lounge are two key additions to Flemingate's line-up. They reaffirm the centre's position as a complete day-out, with Flemingate offering visitors a high quality combination of shopping and leisure previously unavailable in the catchment.

"The brands are also a great complement to one another, providing visitors with even more choice whilst both bringing something new to Beverley."

Keith Bird, chief operating officer at GBK, added: "With the opening of Flemingate, the town of Beverley is thriving, so the time seemed right to open a restaurant in the area. As a new destination in town, Flemingate is attracting a lot of attention, so when it came to location the centre stood out for us."

GBK and Riva Lounge will be joining the likes of Costa, Deli No 1, Subway, Greggs and Patisserie Valerie. In addition to the retail offering, Flemingate also includes an 80-bed Premier Inn hotel, new campus for East Riding College and 130 homes.
