Loungers plans two new sites in Somerset

Casual dining and bar group, Loungers has submitted plans to Mendip District Council to open two new restaurants in Street and Wells in Somerset.

The planning statement said the opening hours could be 8am-11.30pm from Sunday to Wednesday, and 8am-12.30am on Thursday to Saturday.

The company, which launched in 2002, currently operates two Somerset Cosy Club sites in Bath and Taunton.

Loungers' portfolio includes over 100 sites in total, the majority of which are known by the Lounge brand.

The group has offered full, separate vegan and gluten-free menus since 2003. The menus change twice a year and offer brunch, tapas, burger and main options.
