Whitbread-owned steak restaurant chain, Beefeater is opening a new site today in the Baker Quays development in Gloucester.
This will be the first Beefeater restaurant to open in Gloucester city centre, offering a new dining experience for local residents and visitors to the city.
The Beefeater restaurant and Premier Inn hotel, located on St Ann’s Way, will be the latest addition to the Baker Quays development, part of the regeneration of the Gloucester docks.
Tom Moir, Head of Marketing at Whitbread, said, “The Beefeater brand is known for serving great steaks and grills to the people of Britain for over 40 years and is a popular choice with diners across the country. We’re confident that this latest addition to the Beefeater family will become the go-to place for locals and tourists to enjoy juicy steaks, grills and delicious burgers.
“Regular customers will be familiar with the Beefeater brand but over the past few years, we have undergone a major revamp both in terms of our interior design and our menu offering. We’re delighted to be providing a brand-new dining experience that is both modern and welcoming for guests.”
The menu provides extensive choice to suit everybody, with a variety of steak cuts from flat-iron to fillet, as well as traditional house favourites, burgers and grills and alternative dishes including scallops and chocolate churros sundae. With its close proximity to the Premier Inn, it gives hotel guests a convenient place to eat whilst also offering quality food and a casual dining experience.
Liam Brace, General Manager of the Gloucester Quays Beefeater, said, “We’re really looking forward to the opening of this new Beefeater. It is not only a friendly place for friends and family to get together but it also presents an opportunity for employment in the local area.”
Whitbread has invested over £9m in the new Premier Inn hotel and Beefeater restaurant that has created 52 year-round jobs. The restaurant will be accompanied by a new Premier Inn hotel and a Costa Coffee and drive-through.
