TGI Friday’s, the Karen Forrester-led group, has opened its new site at Silverburn, Hammerson’s flagship regional out-of-town shopping centre in Glasgow.

Inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the world-famous Glasgow School of Art, the new 6,821sq ft restaurant’s décor is unique to Silverburn.

TGI Friday’s is the latest restaurant to open in Silverburn’s new 100,000sq ft leisure extension, and follows the debuts of Carluccio’s, Patisserie Valerie and Pret A Manger earlier this month.

Joining them will be Five Guys, Cosmo, Zizzi, Chimichanga and PizzaExpress.

Chris Daly, catering leasing executive at Hammerson, said: “The new TGI Friday’s at Silverburn is a stunning restaurant whose design reflects the rich architecture, art and design heritage that Glasgow is famous for as the birthplace of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The design creates a real sense of theatre and is a fantastic addition to the leisure extension.”

Bruce Gillingham Pollard acted for Hammerson and CBRE represented TGI Friday’s.
