Plans submitted for new £17m restaurant quarter at Eldon Square

The proposal includes plans to create a destination dining quarter, providing 21 new catering units within the current Sidgate and High Friars malls. Set over two levels, the covered dining space will offer bother casual and fine dining.

It is expected that approximately 250 permanent jobs will be created once all the restaurant outlets are open.

Martin Breeden, asset management director for Intu explained: “Newcastle is a vibrant city and Intu Eldon Square occupies the prime pitch with an annual footfall of 36 million. We want to deliver high-quality catering which will meet the high demand from our shoppers. Intu Eldon Square will become an even better place for people to spend quality time together and we are looking forward to bringing some great new names and concepts to the city.”

Pat Ritchie, chief executive of Newcastle City Council, said: "Investing in our city, supporting business and creating the right conditions for growth are critical to our future and we are playing an active part. This proposed new destination dining quarter will add to the distinctiveness of the city centre and underline Newcastle's attractiveness as a key destination." 

Work is expected to start on site in early 2014 for an opening around Easter 2015.

Intu is already investing heavily in the shopping centre which is currently undergoing a £22 million refreshment and modernisation programme which includes the upgrade of the ceilings and interiors and a new main entrance to the centre on Northumberland Street.
