Refurbished King's Lynn Wimpy restaurant welcomes back diners
Changes at a Lynn town centre restaurant have been unveiled this week as customers returned for the first time after the coronavirus lockdown.
The Wimpy restaurant on New Conduit Street had its grand opening on Wednesday after the building had been completely refurbished.
As a result of the makeover, the eatery's seating capacity will increase to 120 once the new outdoor seating area is completed within the next "seven to 10 days".
Owner Raj Bhangal said: "I am very pleased with the result. Everything in here is brand new apart from us! The most common comment we have received is that it needed to be done as it was dated."
He continued: "We fully reopened on Wednesday and it has been going fine as we have taken all the safety measures in line with government guidelines.
"It is going a little bit slower than before lockdown for obvious reasons but if it was not due to Covid then we would probably have been triple the usual levels. People are still a little bit cautious."
The indoor changes were completed within the original time frame set out but the new outdoor seating has been delayed due to Covid-19.
Mr Bhangal expects this to be delivered on Monday, and it will then be completed within the next seven to 10 days.
The restaurant will be taking part in the government's Eat Out to Help Out Scheme from Monday, which will give customers a discount on food or non-alcoholic drinks (up to a maximum of £10 discount per diner) every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday up to August 31.
