This is when the Corn Exchange’s restaurants will finally reopen

Manchester’s Corn Exchange has announced the dates of when each of its restaurants and bars will be reopening now that the government has given hospitality the green light to trade.

Indoor table service is permitted in England from July 4.

Three Corn Exchange sites will be welcoming back customers from Saturday – including stylish bar and kitchen, Banyan, Berlin-inspired Doner Haus and family-run Italian restaurant Salvi’s.

Indian street food diner Mowgli will reopen on July 6, whilst laidback dining spot Cosy Club has confirmed a July 8 return.

The Corn Exchange’s remaining resident brands, which include Escape Hunt, Gino’s, Pho, Pizza Express, Roomzzz, Tampopo, Vapiano, Wahaca and Zizzi, will be back in action from mid-July onwards.

Social distancing measures and a one-way system have been implemented across the Corn Exchange to ensure “visitors can dine, relax and socialise in safety” – with each brand introducing prior booking and reduced guest capacity to meet government guidelines.

Doner Haus and Gino’s are also offering takeaway and delivery from the 2 and 15 July respectively.

Liam Mooney, General Manager at Corn Exchange Manchester, said: “We’re excited to safely once again welcome visitors to our mouth-watering mix of brands, which will begin to reopen from this weekend.

“The teams onsite have worked hard to introduce measures to keep colleagues and guests alike safe while at work or play and we’re all looking forward to being a key destination for those visiting Manchester city centre.

He continued: “Opening hours and booking arrangements will vary between brands, so check online before arriving to make sure you can attend.

“We’ll be closely monitoring Public Health England’s advice and will be reviewing the guidance regularly to ensure the site is as safe as possible.”
