UK restaurant chain submits plan to take over Llandudno retail unit

A restaurant chain has submitted plans to open a site in Llandudno. Loungers had previously hoped to bring the brand to the former Marks and Spencer satellite store on Mostyn Street.

After initially being rejected by planners in 2019, a modified plan was given the green light, but with the pandemic affecting the hospitality industry, the chain withdrew its plan in 2021. Last month, North Wales Live revealed that the mark were now looking for staff in Llandudno although they would not comment on the plans.

Now although an application has been submitted for a site on Gloddaeth Street – currently occupied by retailer M&Co. They say the retailer is leaving and looking for alternative locations in the city. M&Co was invited to comment.

Loungers said the proposal would ‘improve the provision of food and drink establishments in Llandudno town centre’. Bosses added that the restaurant would create new jobs – with up to 30 roles – and bring significant investment into the site.

The brand was founded in 2002 by a trio of longtime friends, Dave Reid, Alex Reilley and Jake Bishop after years in the restaurant and bar business. The chain has over 200 locations across the UK and offers a café, bar and restaurant experience with an eccentric cocktail menu and a wide range of food and drink.

The first North Wales location opened in Prestatyn in 2018 – followed by a restaurant in Bangor in early 2019.
