The £200,000-plus investment will see business partners Zeeshan Manzoor and Jay Ayub add a premium grill restaurant to the city centre offerings - specialising in flamed peri peri grilled chicken, gourmet burgers and further down the line, steak.

The menu at the 40-plus seat venue, which will open seven days a week, will also offer vegetarian and vegan dishes.

Zeeshan said: “It has taken a lot of hard work - and money - taking a former office with no gas, never mind no kitchen and coverting it, but we feel it has been worth it.”
