Retro-inspired family restaurant opens in Grantham town centre

By KentOnline reporter

A quirky retro-inspired family restaurant opened its doors this week.

West Country-based bar group Loungers opened Cinco Lounge in the Isaac Newton Centre on Wednesday, after spending £642,000 transforming the site which has been empty since the former JJB Sports closed in 2011.

The family-friendly retro-inspired cosy retreat features eclectic artwork and quirky curios next to oversized vintage sofas and old school benches.

Phil Kinsella, operations manager, said: "We are really looking forward to showing the locals how to lounge in style."

Children are made to feel welcome too with a selection of games and books, colouring pencils and pads in the craft area, a full menu just for little loungers, high chairs and baby-change facilities.

A community noticeboard is available for those wanting to publicise events and a book swap area is kept well stocked.

Cheryl Leaper, of Bradley Drive, was one of the first to visit on Wednesday.

She said: "The food is amazing and the atmosphere is so casual, relaxing and calming. I was made to feel very welcome. An amazing asset to Grantham and definitely my new hangout."

General manager Rachel Collins, who has 18 years' experience of working in hospitality, said: "A lounge for me is somewhere to relax. We want to bring the community together, whether that be the local knitting group or a mum and her children. We want people to relax and have a great experience."
