New £7million dining venue launches this weekend at White Rose


The White Rose Shopping Centre’s new food court – which will now be known as the balcony – will be officially unveiled this weekend.

White Rose Shopping Centre JMA fairground themed party, complete with ‘Hook a Duck,’ ‘Target the Jar’ and a ‘Candy-floss Tricycle’, will greet shoppers to celebrate the new look dining venue.

More than 800 food and drink prizes will be up for grabs across the weekend, including the chance to dine out at White Rose for a year with a £200 gift card.

Teams from White Rose’s restaurants and eateries will be out on the malls encouraging shoppers to sample the wide range of food and drink available across the Centre, while the White Rose ‘Grubs Up team’ will also be handing out money-off vouchers.

The £7 million redevelopment has welcomed five brand new food and beverage operators to the centre including Frankie & Benny’s, Prezzo, Wok& Go, Primo’s Gourmet Hotdogs and handmade burger Co. These join a line-up of 17 existing eateries such as Nando’s, McDonalds, Costa Coffee and a brand new concept Bagel Nash.

The expansion has brought a much fresher, contemporary new-look to the dining venue which is now a third larger in size. All existing food and beverage operators on the upper mall have also invested in extensive re-fits in-keeping with the new improved look. Customer facilities, including toilets, a baby change area and a quiet room have also been re-vamped as part of the redevelopment.

James Bailey, centre director at White Rose, said:

“Ensuring our customers have a great experience at White Rose is really important to us and we knew it was time to invest and refresh our catering offer.

“The £7million redevelopment has enabled us to increase the size of our dining venue, substantially improve facilities and introduce a host of new eateries. We’re now in the position to blend both a restaurant and grab and go food offer to ensure our customers have a greater choice. Shoppers now have a wide variety of options for when they want to grab a snack on the go or sit down and enjoy a meal with family and friends.”

This latest development will add momentum to the high calibre of retailers that have joined the retail line-up at White Rose. Key arrivals include Simply Be, Jacamo, Quiz, Paperchase, Pandora, Boux Avenue and Superdry cementing White Rose’s position as a fashion and leisure destination.
