Some good news if you’re from Rochdale and love Nando’s – the restaurant chain is opening a new branch in the town.

The new site will be part of the £80m Rochdale Riverside scheme, with the South African chicken restaurant opening alongside two more retail and leisure brands.

Nando’s has taken a 3,500 sq ft unit on a 15 year-lease, while luxury dessert chain Heavenly Desserts is opening on a 2,000 sq ft space on a 10-year lease.

Superdrug will be joining them, with a 4,500 sq ft unit, with the scheme bringing 24 new retail and leisure units to the heart of Rochdale town centre, alongside a six screen cinema.

Rochdale Borough Council

M&S, H&M, Next, Boots, Reel Cinemas and Hollywood Bowl’s new mini golf concept, Puttstars, are all currently being fitted out on site, while JD Sports and River Island will also take units.

Rochdale Riverside is being delivered in a joint venture between Genr8 and Kajima in partnership with Rochdale Borough Council, and boasts approximately 200,000 sq ft (60,970 sq m) of retail and leisure accommodation in the heart of the town.

Lauren Gavaghan, Development Manager at Genr8 Developments, said: “We are delighted to have agreed a deal to bring three popular brands to the Rochdale Riverside scheme. These occupiers will complement the current tenant mix in the scheme and will help drive forward the leisure element.

“The scheme is now 80% let and with works continuing to progress at pace, we are now looking forward to completion and the launch.”

Rochdale Borough Council

Councillor Allen Brett, leader of Rochdale Borough Council, said: “Rochdale town centre has undergone a major transformation in recent years, and Rochdale Riverside is a key part of it.

“These new additions will complement the ever expanding offer in Rochdale town centre, which includes fantastic new independent restaurants, Bombay Brew and the Mannerist, and will soon welcome a Hogarth’s pub as part of a £1m restoration of one of our major historic buildings.”

Work on site is set to be completed in April 2020, with a launch festival scheduled for the Easter weekend.

The Manchester bars now serving food to stay open in tier 3

Show your support where you can.

Several bars are now serving food so they can stay open in the new tier 3 restrictions.

Tier 3 restrictions are now in place in Greater Manchester meaning bars not serving ‘substantial’ meals have to close, estimated at 2,000 venues. 

However, many bars who have been open since July 4th with new Covid-secure measures in place are quickly adapting their offering to now serving food so they can remain open.

Anything ‘like a main lunchtime or evening meal’ is deemed ‘substantial’ by the government’s official definition.

G-A-Y is now serving a low-price nostalgic food menu called ‘Not The Ivy But Substantial’. 

The menu includes a range of brilliant grub all for £2, including beans on toast, jacket potatoes, and cheese and tomato pizza with chips.

The Sis4ers gin distillery has launched a new afternoon tea concept while the Red Lion Inn in Whitworth is offering £1.50 beef dripping chip butties. The bar said ”some would say is a pretty… substantial meal… if you’re picking up what we’re putting down here’

Sammys Cocktail bar is now serving bagels at just £3, including salt beef, pastrami, smoked salmon and cream cheese and a vegan version of the smoked salmon bagel. 

Craft beer bar The Crooked Man in Prestwich is now hosting a pop up from SanSan, which includes massive sandwiches, wraps, burgers, and even their famous bacon waffle sandwich.

Popular takeaway shop Cafe Marhaba have offered up their services to pubs and bars to help them stay open. On Instagram they said: “We think we may be able to provide a pop up service or meal kits which you can put together to provide your customers with a substantial meal.” Send them a DM if you’re interested. 

Neighbourhood bar The Milliner in Stockport have quickly changed into a new restaurant Northern Scraps and will be selling bowls of veggie chilli for just £1. 

YES on Charles Street (just off Oxford Road) is now operating as a self-titled ‘yes-taurant’ keeping up its existing food trade as normal. You can get pizzas by the slice or whole as well as vegan Doner kebabs.

Common bar is now a family restaurant with its in-house partnership, Nell’s pizza available all day every day. 

Grub shared on Instagram that they will help any businesses without a substantial food offering by helping arrange a street food trader with them.
