New additions to the scene on Water Lane include Juniper which has opened in the premises previously occupied by Camarena and prior to that it was a Slug and Lettuce.
Juniper, which also has brasseries in Bramhall and Hale, serves all day breakfast along with brunch, lunch and late lunch.
Just down the road a Mediterranean peri peri charcoal grill called Kalos also opened its doors for the first time today in the premises which has been empty since Paperchase closed in August 2019.
Whilst Roost is preparing to open shortly, in the larger premises which has been empty since the Argentinian restaurant CAU closed after the company went into administration in July 2018.
