Food & Drink

Blakey’s will cease trading on Wednesday 21st March 2018.

Restaurant chain EastZEast is in discussion with the Council to open a 200-seat restaurant operating 7 days a week plus a gelato offer with coffee, light meals and desserts during the day.

It is a significant investment in Blackburn Town Centre, a valuable new addition to the improved food and drink offer in the town centre and a support of the upcoming £16 million development of the wider Blakey Moor area.

EastZEast is a well-respected brand with a number of outlets including Preston, Manchester and Birmingham, and is also expanding into the South of the UK. It is hoped that up to 30 jobs could be created.

It has to the potential to offer event catering including bespoke wedding packages being ideally located next to the Register office in the building.

The King George’s Hall team would like to thank everyone that has supported Blakey’s over the years and we look forward to working with a range of restaurants in the town centre to develop a varied catering offer for our patrons.
