A bar and restaurant is getting ready for a grand opening in East Lancashire and hopes to welcome customers to a new dining experience.

Freya’s Grill Bar and Restaurant will be opening in Duckworth Street, Darwen, within the next few weeks, with staff preparing a range of recipes and making sure the kitchens and dining areas are ready.

Manager Naz Islam said he can’t wait to welcome in people from Darwen, Blackburn and those from further afield.

He said: “We’re very excited to be opening up, it’ll be such a great place to come out and bring the family once its ready.”

Duckworth Street is found close to Darwen town centre and Mr Islam hopes it will prove to be easily accessible to both visitors and locals.

The bar and restaurant will serve a range of meals including steak, burgers, cocktails and peri-peri chicken.

For Mr Islam this marks a new venture and the chance to get to know a range of new customers.

He and his staff are now putting the finishing touches on the restaurant and hope to be able to announce an opening date at some point in early July.

Until then, would-be customers can follow Freya’s Grill Bar and Restaurant on Instagram at @FREYAS_GRILL.
