The first restaurant has opened at the £18m Eastpoint Entertainment Village at Dundonald. Wolfe’s Burger Connoisseurs will be open seven days a week offering a range of hand-made burgers.
The owners, who already run the successful Papa Brown’s Grill in Carrickfergus say the new venture will result in 15 full-time jobs and up to 20 part-time jobs over the next couple of months.
And they plan to open a second restaurant, the Blue Chicago Grill at Eastpoint within a few months.
Wolfe’s is the first of a number of new restaurants due to open within the £18m complex that has been developed by Turkington Holdings, according to joint letting agents Osborne King.
An eight-screen Omniplex cinema opened in December. The 85,000 sq ft development also provides extensive on-site car parking spaces.
Mark Carron from letting agents Osborne King, said: “It’s very encouraging to see this development coming to fruition, and now that the Omniplex is fully operational and Wolfe’s is up and running, Eastpoint looks set to become a major leisure and entertainment attraction and one that will complement other attractions located immediately within the vicinity.
“This part of the borough currently attracts thousands of visitors per week and we’re confident that restaurants such as Wolfe’s will help to establish Eastpoint Entertainment Village, and indeed Dundonald as one of the province’s top leisure destinations.”
The restaurant’s chic modern fit-out boasts a fabulous boutique style interior with a mixture of intimate booths and open-plan seating areas for larger parties.
Olivia Hall of Wolfe Burgers said: “Having successfully established ourselves in Carrickfergus, we were looking for a new challenge when the opportunity to launch a restaurant at Eastpoint arose.
“We think that there’s a definite market for what Wolfe’s has to offer which is quality, value-for-money food at affordable prices in a relaxed, sociable and fun atmosphere.
“We have an all day dining extensive menu from breakfast, lunch to evening meals so that people can drop in at any time whether it’s just for a snack, coffee, dessert or a full meal.
“Plus, there’s no need to make a reservation, although bookings are available.”
The joint letting agents expect to announce further restaurant openings in the complex soon.
