A popular restaurant chain is going back to its roots ahead of its reopening in July.

Fridays is set to reopen its Bolton restaurant and welcome guests back on July 6.

This comes as part of the phased reopening of the chain which will see 66 restaurants open nationwide on this day in line with government guidance.

Fridays has been closed for in-restaurant dining during lockdown but has kept its click and collect and home delivery service running during this time.

Safety measures that will be included in the reopening range from advanced bookings, socially distanced queues and hand sanitizing stations.

Menus will also be singe use, tables and chairs will be sanitised after every sitting, and there will be dedicated door hosts to guide people around.

Speaking about the reopening of the Bolton restaurant, in Middlebrook retail park, Fridays CEO, Robert B. Cook, said: "It feels great to be able to welcome our guests back into our restaurants from Monday July 6 and once again give them that memorable Fridays experience.

"We are confident that guests will feel safe when they dine in our restaurants thanks to our COVID-19 safety management control measures that will safeguard our teams and our guests."
