North Fish to open debut UK branch at Bullring

Norwegian-inspired seafood restaurant brand North Fish – based in Poland – is to open its first UK site early in 2020, with a site at the Bullring in Birmingham.

The restaurant will be the first for the brand outside its home market, as it embarks on an international expansion programme. It currently operates 47 restaurants in Poland, all located in popular shopping centres.

The 139 sq m (1,500 sq ft) Bullring restaurant has been designed by an in-house team. It will provide 54 covers in a site opposite Cafe Rouge. It will offer a range of fish and seafood dishes.

“The launch of our business in the UK is something we have worked hard to achieve for a long time – choosing the right place to kick-start our expansion here was crucial, and we are delighted to be joining the line-up at Bullring. Birmingham is a buzzing and vibrant city with rich culture, and Bullring sits at the heart of it. We are very excited to welcome the first customers in our restaurant very soon,” said North Food group CEO Szymon Adamczuk.

“North Fish is yet another example of a leading global brand choosing one of our flagship destinations to help them jump-start their international expansion,” added Iain Mitchell, UK commercial director at Bullring owner Hammerson. “Across our portfolio, we’re focusing on F&B brands that can offer something new and fresh for our customers, and North Fish really epitomises that strategy in action. I’m sure it will be a great addition to the broader line-up at Bullring & Grand Central”.
