The Elite Fish & Chip Company is opening a new fish and chip restaurant and takeaway in the Bailgate.
As previously reported, the City of Lincoln Council granted permission to turn the former Lloyds TSB bank on the Bailgate into a restaurant and takeaway.
Adrian Tweedale, Co-Director at The Elite Fish & Chip Company, said: “This is a very exciting year for the business, and we are very much looking forward to bringing something new to the Bailgate.
“We will of course be offering our traditional fish and chips in both the restaurant and the takeaway which will be accessible from a separate entrance on St Paul’s Lane.
“Plans are still being finalised, but we are seizing the opportunity for the business to go beyond fish and chips, and we’ll be offering a varied seafood menu on certain days of the week.”
The new restaurant will create 40 new jobs in the area for 16 full-time staff members and 24 part-time staff members. There are expected to be 80 covers.
During its 30-year history the company has expanded to three restaurants and takeaways in Ruskington, Sleaford and Lincoln.
