Booths, the upmarket North West-based food retailer, is to open one of its restaurants in the evenings - in a move that marks a first for the company. The 26-strong group said that later openings on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays would allow its Artisan restaurant in Kendal, Cumbria, to serve dinner. The restaurant is located in the basement of the group’s flagship store and has recently relaunched its menu and appointed an operations manager.
