Harry Ramsden’s, the UK’s longest established fish and chip restaurant chain, is set to re-open its Scarborough restaurant in the spring.

The decision comes following a company review of the restaurant, which was forced to close in October.

Plans are now being finalised which will see a significant six-figure sum committed to the 50-cover Foreshore Road outlet.

As well as a number of internal renovations, the investment will allow for external work to be carried out, including a refreshed fascia and brand new signage, which is scheduled to begin within the next two weeks.

Then the recruitment process for a variety of positions, including managerial and waiting staff as well as a kitchen brigade, will get under way.

Mike Glancy, group operations director for Harry Ramsden’s, said: “We believe that the funds we are investing in the Scarborough business will dramatically improve both the internal and external appearance, making it immensely more inviting and appealing to customers.”

It will also feature a new menu with a wider choice.
