A major three quarter of a million pound investment in a Promenade restaurant is almost complete.

External and internal works are set to completely transform the look and feel of Blackpool’s Harry Ramsden restaurant and its associated takeaway.

In addition, as part of the refurbishment works, a brand new cafe has been created increasing the capacity of the restaurant from 153 to 165.

Paying homage to the brand’s maritime heritage the new look will incorporate a sea of greens and blues, as well as smart black and white checked flooring, newspaper wallpapering, porthole mirrors, and vintage black and white prints of fishermen landing their catch.

The chain, which has 35 restaurants across the UK, was set up 85 years ago.

Joe Teixeira, chief executive officer of Harry Ramsden’s, said: “As we continue to develop the brand, we look forward to unveiling the new face of Harry Ramsden’s to both existing and a new generation of customers.

“It is our ambition the new look venue will prove to be as popular out of season with the local community, as it is with the millions of day trippers and tourists, which Blackpool successfully attracts.”

The new look restaurant will be officially reopened by Mayor of Blackpool, Coun Val Haynes, on Tuesday.
