After securing planning permission for new signage and outdoor seating, Sameer Bashir has taken on a 10 year lease on the venue.

News of the XOXO restaurant comes weeks after it was revealed a £1million Middleton’s Steak House is planned for three units in Bridge vStreet, close to St Peter’s Arcade. A planning application for the change of use is currently with the city council, and is unlikely to open before late summer.
