The Garden is Now Open!

22nd December 2017

Our eagerly anticipated food and drink space, ‘The Garden’ is now open! The 240-cover space brings together local independent restaurants Boss Hogs Burgers & Dogs, Woks Up Noodle Bar, Yorkshire Puddings & Pies and Fat Frank’s Taco’s & Burritos. Dessert bar the Sweet Shack is serving Wakefield’s first ‘chocolate kebabs’ and a licensed Tree Bar selling wines and beers is set to open in the New Year.

As one of the first shopping centres in the UK to open a food court, also known as ‘In The Garden’, in 1983, we’re now delighted to offer a contemporary open-plan space for shoppers to eat, drink and relax.

Lee Appleton, Centre Director at The Ridings Shopping Centre, commented: “We are so pleased to have brought back ‘The Garden’ to The Ridings, giving our shoppers and the local community something new and exciting. Showcasing some of Wakefield’s favourite eateries, the space is set to become a buzzy hangout which offers something for everyone.”
