A NEW fish and chip offering with a modern twist on classic favourites will open its doors to the public in Chellaston early next month (November) with 25 new staff serving up freshly prepared delights including fish pakoras, halloumi wraps and a ‘proper dirty’ burger.
All of the options on the new menu at George’s Chellaston are restaurant inspired freshly prepared dishes created by the company’s head chef, who has been involved in many exciting and famous restaurants as well as being the head chef at Wayne Rooney’s wedding.
George’s will be closing its current venue in Royal Glen Park and will open its new £200,000 takeaway in Swarkestone Road in early November, following an exclusive launch for local businesses, journalists and food bloggers on November 4.
Following the launch of the first George’s Kitchen in Nottingham city centre last year, the brand has gone from strength to strength with its ambitious plan to open more restaurants and takeaways countrywide over the next five years.
The Chellaston shop is the first of its kind to showcase the brand’s new interior design and menu of a 21st century fish and chip shop designed to appeal to the modern professional, families and local residents.
Manager director at George’s Andrew Constantinou said the new shop is all about freshness. With the key themes set as freshly sourced produce, freshly cooked food, fresh tasting meals and fresh thinking, there will be no more food sat in hot cabinets.
Andrew said: “We are extremely excited about the launch of our new shop in Chellaston. It is hard to describe the feel and atmosphere of the new venue without visiting it – because it’s so different from your usual fish and chip shop.
“Our menu will appeal to all ages, with new dishes such as a cod burger, pulled pork wrap and chicken wings to choose from as well as traditional fish and chip dishes.”
The takeaway will also be one of the first fish and chip shops in Derby to offer alcohol, in the form of locally sourced bottled beer.
Andrew added: “The new shop is still a takeaway, however there are tables available to enjoy your meal at – there won’t be table service and you can’t book tables – but it will have more of a restaurant feel due to the interior design because of our attention to detail on all the fixtures and fittings.”
The fish and chip shop is set to open in the second week of November.
