A chain of a Northamptonshire restaurants will open its latest new premises in the next few weeks, the owner has said.

Tom Hewer is opening Frank’s Hamburger House in a listed building in Watling Street,Towcester and is installing the final items into what was formerly an Indian restaurant.

I think making things from scratch gives people confidence they will get good quality.

He said: “Aside from some of the names of the dishes, the menu is what has worked well at our other burger restaurants.

“It’s proving popular because everything from our chips to our barbecue sauce is made here from scratch and I think that gives people confidence they will get good quality.”

Empty for about two years, the new premises were taken on by Mr Hewer a year ago but he has been concentrating on opening other ventures, including one under the Steakhouse brand at The Sevens pub in St James and the rebranded Artizan pub in Abington.

The finishing touches at the Towcester restaurant will include a bespoke grill, which will be placed so diners can watch the cooking happen while they wait.

Handmade furniture also needs to be installed, with the opening likely to be around the end of April.
