“I have been wanting to reopen but it has taken some time to get things together,” he said.

“We will concentrate the business downstairs during the week, rather than the restaurant area upstairs, so passersby can see when there are customers dining.”

Lunch (12noon to 5pm) with four cuts of meet, plus salad, will cost £7.99 through the week and £12.99 at weekends. Dinner will cost £12.99.

For those wanting the full rodizio treatment - that’s 12 cuts of meat - with salad the cost will be £15.99 through the week and £18.99 at weekends. Dinner will be £18.99, Sunday to Thursday, and £23.99 on Friday and Saturday.

There will also be live Latin music on Fridays and Saturday from 5pm.
