THE first of a new raft of six Harvester restaurants for clients Mitchells & Butlers has been handed over to the client this week.
All the eateries are undergoing substantial makeovers that give them a fresh, light and welcoming appearance and atmosphere to delight their guests.
The Magic Lantern in North Shields (pictured) is the first to be completed and has been warmly received by clients Mitchells & Butlers.
A spokesman for Harvester said: “We are excited to be opening a new Harvester in North Shields and adding another great location to our Harvester family.
“We are proud to offer great-value menus, packed with everything from tasty grills to indulgent desserts, including plenty of choice for our young guests too.
“All our new Harvesters have been designed to be fresh, light and welcoming to all our guests.”
There are more than 200 Harvester restaurants nationwide and the number is set to grow.
As well as Harvester, the firm’s portfolio includes brands such as Toby Carvery, All Bar One, Miller & Carter, Crown Carveries, Sizzling Pubs, O’Neill’s and Ember Inns.
The other Harvester restaurants on Pacific Building’s books are at Hillington, on the outskirts of Glasgow, Halbeath in Fife, The Ghillies Lair in Bridge of Dee, Aberdeenshire, Sunderland and East Kilbride.
The completion of the North Shields restaurant followed the handover of the Harvester in Livingston, West Lothian, which underwent a six-week refit running to about £300,000
