3Sixty Restaurants, which operates the Ego and Rocket restaurant brands, is to open its first site outside London under the Rocket brand after securing a unit within the Cornerhouse development in Nottingham.

The new site, which has the largest rooftop terrace in Nottingham city centre, will become the fourth to open under the brand, when it launches early next year.

Last month, the chain, which is led by James Horler, secured a 130-cover site in London’s Bishopsgate, which is due to open next spring and will become the brand’s fifth unit.

3Sixty, which is backed by Horler and Luke Johnson, was formed in March and currently comprises eight Ego restaurants in the Midlands and North of England and three Rocket restaurants in Mayfair, the City and Canary Wharf.
