Preparations are under way for a new restaurant to open soon in the town centre.

The Regent Circus site, which is currently home to a Cineworld cinema, a Nandos and a Lamaya restaurant will now also be the new home of Funky Grilla.

The new eatery will be next to the former ASK Italian unit, which is now permanently closed. 

Work is being carried put inside and there are building materials outside its doors. Its website is also being built

But there is no word yet as to when it will be officially opening its doors to the public. 

Funky Grilla will be joining a new Boom Battle Bar franchise in the Regent Circus complex, as preparations have begun for the 'adventure bar' to be built in the former home of Coal.
