An upmarket steakhouse is set to open by one of Northampton's busiest roundabouts this Friday - only two months after the venue ceased trading as a Toby Carvery.
While the average cost of a meal at the new 120-seat Miller & Carter restaurant will be around £20, compared to the £5-a-head offers previously available at the Talavera Way venue, new manager Simone Assenza is expecting it to be a hit.
He said: "We will be aiming to cater for a very different kind of customer than the Toby Carvery brand, bringing a really different dining experience to Northampton."
"And it will be great to bring a premium brand to the area."
The Spinney Hill roundabout Miller & Carter will be the 52nd outlet opened in the UK as part of a rapid brand expansion.
The Mitchells and Butler owned chain promises diners a choice of 12 cuts of steak as well burgers and an evening menu.
While prices range from about £15 to £25 for the steaks, there will also be lunchtime deals under a tenner available from Monday to Saturday, and the Thursday night Cork and Cleaver deal offers punters a meal and a glass of wine for £15.
The new restaurant, situated next to a Travelodge will employ 70 people in total, though only two staff have been retained from the previous Toby Carvery, which is also owned bty Mitchells and Butler.
"We feel our product is amazing," Mr Assenza, 28, from Grantham continued. "You will never get a steak as good as ours .
"We are really proud of what we serve and what we are doing here."
