For our inaugural launch, The Hall will bring together young, dynamic and independent food and drink producers from across the South-East in a 14,500 sq ft sized site, located in Essex’s most popular shopping centre, intu Lakeside. With seven kitchens, a coffee shop, pop-up areas for food trucks and two bars championing British-made beers, spirits and soft drinks, this vibrant and diverse space will be the antithesis to the largely anonymous restaurant experiences typically found in large retail centres.
The Hall at intu Lakeside has been designed for families, big groups, lone shoppers and couples alike, with an array of high quality, good-value dining options and relaxed seating solutions to suit everyone. The launch is an integral part of intu Lakeside’s ambition to provide compelling entertainment for all age groups, and goes hand in hand with the development of Nickelodeon’s first family entertainment centre, indoor mini golf experience Puttshack’s first location outside of London, the opening of one of Hollywood Bowl’s largest tenpin bowling venues, indoor trampolining experience Flipout, and the existing nine-screen Vue Cinema, all of which are moments away from The Hall.
“This is an exciting avenue for Market Halls. The Hall will provide a new and vibrant social dining option for the 25 million visitors to intu Lakeside every year. ” Andy Lewis-Pratt, CEO
