Casual Dining Gruop have today revealed which branches of restaurants will close after revealing 91 will shut for good with the loss of 1,900 jobs.
Bella Italia in Bexleyheath and Cafe Rouge in Blackheath are among those to permanently close. The Bromley branch of Cafe Rouge is another victim in today’s list.
Bella Italia is located within the Cineworld building in Bexleyheath. It wasn’t a great spot in terms of passing footfall. It’s next door to Frankie & Benny’s which have their own problems. They announced 3,000 job losses last month.
When things get back to normal any forthcoming restaurants would be more likely to succeed in new commercial units planned at the base of new homes opposite Cineworld.
Footfall is far higher here between council offices, shoppers heading to Lidl and people towards the cinema – and that will only increase with 500 new homes.
