Toni Carbajosa, Cranside Kitchen director, said: "The level of interest has been unprecedented, and our team is eager to get started. Cranside Kitchen was launched in lockdown in May 2020, and as customers will see, we have adapted, expanded our food and beverage offerings and become more tech-focused in terms of menus, so everything is done from people's phones.

"Instead of us handing out menus, customers can view menus and order directly from their mobile devices.”

Cranside Kitchen customers will be able to order multiple dishes from multiple restaurants while dining together. There will be no restrictions on the restaurant brands from which customers can choose.

Separate kitchens allow guests to enjoy a variety of menu offerings, and orders are placed through the Cranside Kitchen app or QR code scans on your phone or tablet. When ordering, all payments will be made in advance, and food and drink items will be delivered to tables by a member of the team. The venue has capacity for over 300 guests.
