Regional Indian gastropub Tap & Tandoor is to open its second site, at Queensgate Shopping Centre in Peterborough.

The operator has taken a 4,329 sq ft unit at 52/53 Cumbergate, which is due to open later this month. The 80-cover restaurant will offer small plates, mixed grills and home-style curries.

Guy Thomas, head of retail at Lendlease, which manages the shopping centre, said: “One of our main objectives as a landlord is to support local businesses with our hands-on approach benefitting up and coming concepts.

“Tap & Tandoor’s impressive expansion across the catchment area proves the success of their innovative Indian gastropub concept and we are thrilled to announce the brand will join our international dining line-up.”
