Four new food brands sign up to Forge Island development

Forge Island

Four exciting new food brands have signed lease contracts on Rotherham's Forge Island development, bringing a taste of the exotic to the town centre.

Leading urban regeneration developers, Muse, has struck a deal with Thistle Group which will transform the area into a vibrant food destination for the whole community to enjoy.

Casa Peri Peri will bring its own style of Portuguese and Southern African flare, created by Masterchef star, Bobby Geetha.

Estabulo Rodizio / Sakku Samba is a dual-branded concept honouring the Gaucho style of cooking while at the same time celebrating a fusion of Japanese-Brazilian cuisine. It will be the first time that the two concepts are brought together under one roof.

Caffé Noor completes the pack and is a revolutionary luxury coffee shop with a fundamental difference as 50% of all profits will be donated to local community organisations to support vulnerable people.

Boutique cinema operator, The Arc, and national hotel chain, Travelodge, have already signed up to anchor Forge Island, with construction expected to start on site in October.
