Shopping: Open from 9 am until 8 pm

Indoor dining and cinema re-opens

From Monday 17th May.

In line with the next stage of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, The Potteries Centre will be welcoming customers back to enjoy its indoor dining and entertainment offering.

From Monday 17th May, visitors will be able to dine indoors on tables of six people or two households. The centre has a wide range of popular restaurants including Nando’s, Chiquito, The Burger Priest and the newly reopened Bon Pan Asian, providing lots of great options for visitors to enjoy a bite to eat away from the elements.

To celebrate, the centre has revealed its pick of the best dishes and treats available for visitors to enjoy indoors.

Nando’s – Choose the Grilled Chicken Wrap with your favourite spice from £6.75 at Nando’s. For those following a plant-based diet, why not try The Great Imitator, made from pea-protein. It tastes just like the famous PERi-PERi chicken.

The Burger Priest – Looking to get your burger fix, give the California Classic burger a try, with premium beef and tasty sauces. The Vegan burger is also available, made using with the freshest vegetables.

Bon Pan Asian – Explore one of the world’s most exciting cuisines with a banquet of over 150 dishes from Pan Asia. Popular dishes include the Malaysian Rendang Curry or an extensive selection of freshly prepared Sushi.

Chiquito – Add a little sunshine to your day with a moreish Chiquito’s tortilla, available with your choice of filling, including pulled pork, barbacoa beef and pibil jackfruit. Or, why not opt for a paella, available with king prawns, chicken and chorizo or jackfruit, vegan chorizo and sweetcorn.

Cineworld will also be re-opening at the centre on 19th May. May showings include Mortal Kombat, Peter Rabbit 2, Cruella and The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It. To celebrate the opening, the centre is running a competition to win some tickets.

A range of safety precautions will remain in place to keep customers and staff safe both at the centre and in the cinema. These include the requirement to wear face coverings inside the cinema and shopping centre, restaurant pre-bookings, e-ticketing, hand sanitisation stations, contactless paying, limits on visitor numbers and a one-way route around the centre.

Commenting on the centre’s reopening of indoor dining and entertainment, Amy Whittaker, general manager of The Potteries Centre, said:

“Over the past few weeks, many of our visitors have taken full advantage of our outdoor seating and dined alfresco. However, the reopening of indoor dining and Cineworld presents even more options for our visitors to spend time with friends and family.

“We have a fantastic range of restaurants and cafés both inside our centre and within The Hive. Whether it’s a burger or the chance to feast on some delicious Pan-Asian cuisine, there’s certainly something for everyone. And, for film lovers who have missed their blockbuster fix, Cineworld has some great releases hitting screens over the coming weeks too.

“The latest phase of the government roadmap out of lockdown marks a really exciting step for what is hopefully the end of what has been an extremely difficult year.”
