Ormeau Road restaurant Shed Bistro expands premises in £150,000 investment

No time to down tools at Shed Bistro 

Despite pressures on the hospitality sector over the last seven months and the recent closure of all sit-in establishments for the second time this year, the team at Shed Bistro are preparing to reopen their newly expanded restaurant on Belfast’s Ormeau Road.

Investing over £150,000, Shed Bistro will take over the retail unit next door, more than doubling the size of its kitchen and floor space in the restaurant, and increasing its seating capacity and facilities. As well as protecting 12 current roles, the investment will also create up to eight new roles and provide apprenticeship opportunities for aspiring chefs.

The expansion is being undertaken by husband and wife duo, Jonny and Christina Taylor, who have over 15 years experience in the hospitality sector.

Speaking on site at the new restaurant, Christina Taylor, Owner and Front of House Manager at Shed Bistro said:

“We are really excited to unveil our ambitious plans to expand Shed Bistro. As well as a beautiful, stylish new space, our customers can expect more fantastic food, delicious drinks and homely hospitality.

“It has been a tough few months for us and so many others in our industry, so we are really proud that we have been able to not only sustain our business, but to grow Shed Bistro. We couldn’t have done it without our dedicated team and our loyal customers who gave us the drive and determination to overcome the challenges, so we want to thank them all for their support.”

Shed Bistro had previously planned to relaunch at the end of October, but is now hoping to open its doors to the public again on Sunday 15th November. Christina continued:

“We may have been delayed, but that only gives us a little more time to perfect our new premises and master our menus. Our new layout will allow us to provide an even more effective socially distant dining experience, so guests can feel comfortable and relaxed when they visit us.

We can’t wait to show everyone what we have done with the place and to welcome you all back to the new and improved Shed Bistro.”
