A 60-seater fish and chip restaurant and takeaway will open next month in a village south of Lincoln.
Cod’s Kitchen will open in Metheringham in mid-November, creating 10 jobs.
In addition to locally sourced fish and chips, the restaurant will serve Hereford beef steaks, homemade pies and vegetarian dishes.
General manager and head chef Jarrod Sellers has taken out a five-year lease on the property, facilitated by commercial estate agents Banks Long & Co, and with the help of his mum Sharon and dad Phil.
The new restaurant is Jarrod’s first business venture after having worked for 15 years as a head chef within the hospitality and catering industries and at a private school.
Jarrod said: “The takeaway side will boast products of restaurant-standard, available for takeaway, whilst the restaurant will offer a variety of fantastic fresh fish dishes, by way of a more extensive menu at weekends.
“We will be serving lunches, evening meals and afternoon teas and offering a loyalty card scheme to encourage extra interest.”
Sharon added: “Metheringham has a good catchment area, which has given us the confidence to create a 60-seater restaurant, as well as offering takeaway sales.”
