Papas acquires Cleethorpes pier & will open 500-cover restaurant

The family-run Papa's Fish and Chips chain has confirmed the purchase of Cleethorpes pier, officially the UK's best pier, and will establish a 500-cover fish and chip restaurant there.

The Papas family acquired the pier from Bryan Huxford, who reopened it last summer following a £4.7m two-year transformation.

The new owners will continue to operate the pier as it is in its current format, with the tea room, bar and function room staying open alongside the new fish and chip restaurant. Weddings, parties and family functions will also continue as normal.

The Papas family hope to open the fish and chip restaurant and takeaway in early March, creating over 100 jobs, which will be open 365 days a year.

The company has also just opened a 420-cover restaurant on the North Bank.
