Come dine with Friars Walk in Newport – Queensbury Real Estate


Queensberry Real Estate's exciting new Friars Walk development is set to revolutionise leisure and dining in the heart of Newport City Centre. Opening autumn 2015, the major new retail and lifestyle destination will be one of the most significant retail property openings in the UK next year.

Alongside a strong retail line up including Debenhams, Next, Topshop and New Look, the scheme is focused on providing an extensive dining offer, introducing a blend of leading international restaurants and local favourites.

Prezzo, Gourmet Burger Kitchen, Nandos, Cosmo, Frankie & Benny's and Chiquito have all signed up to open a new restaurant at Friars Walk, with space being snapped up fast. Collectively, these restaurants make up more than half of the food offer within the scheme, which is focused around the Usk Plaza and John Frost Square area, fronting out onto a central open space and next to the new 8-screen Cineworld multiplex cinema. Together, they combine to create a compelling offer for city centre visitors throughout the day and into the evening.

Stuart Harris, Commercial Director and Co-Founder at Queensberry, commented: "We have a fantastic selection of family restaurants, welcoming a host of new names who have never before had a presence in the city. Upon completion, Friars Walk will double Newport's potential catchment and retail spend simultaneously and we are very proud to be so closely involved with the growth of the city at such an exciting time."

Situated along the river Usk, Friars Walk offers views across the Waterfront to developments taking place alongside the scheme as well as easy access via the main footbridge connecting the two sides.

Overall, Friars Walk will bring more than 390,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space and create more than 1,100 new jobs for the area. In total, the development comprises 35 retail units, 11 restaurants, 350 secure parking spaces and a major new bus station and interchange, which connect directly with Usk Plaza.
