The Grill Inn Set to Sizzle at Drayton Manor Theme Park!

Drayton Manor Theme Park’s new restaurant, The Grill Inn, has appointed a Restaurant Manager, Abbas Zaidi and Head Chef, Lee Holland, who are busy preparing for its imminent opening on Monday 8th August.

As well as expanding the park’s culinary offering to theme park visitors, the family friendly brasserie will be open to local residents and passers-by. The restaurant will be open daily from 10am and will serve lunch and dinner, from a menu including mouth-watering steak, rib, chicken and fish dishes, which are locally and sustainably sourced. There will also be a tasty selection of cocktails, non-alcoholic mocktails and hot drinks on offer.

Abbas has over 10 years experience in the restaurant industry, having worked for both independent and international chain establishments including Yo Sushi. This experience makes him well-versed in the daily demands of running a restaurant and his extensive knowledge of cocktails will make for a vibrant and popular bar area.

Lee is joining the Grill Inn as Head Chef, a role he is familiar with, having previously worked at Tanners Restaurant in Plymouth, Devon, which won AA Restaurant of the Year whilst under his leadership. He has created delicious menus for The Grill Inn, which include a selection of salads, sharing plates, burgers and steaks with a variety of starches and sauces on the side. There’s also a specially designed children’s menu and dessert menu to ensure every guest is catered for.

Colin Bryan, Managing Director, Drayton Manor Theme Park, comments: “We’re really pleased to welcome Abbas and Lee to the Drayton Manor family. They each bring with them a wealth of experience and a real passion for excellent food and customer service and I’m confident that together they will ensure the success of The Grill Inn.

“Our plan for the next few years is to turn Drayton Manor Theme Park into a leisure resort. This restaurant is part of that plan, as is our new hotel, which is due to open on Monday 15th August.”

The Grill Inn has booth seating accommodating 188 people internally, as well as an additional 40 people on the patio. It has been created following a £350,000 refurbishment of the former Missanda Suite, which had been one of the park’s hospitality venues for private and corporate functions since 1954. The restaurant will also have a separate lounge and bar area, along with two dining rooms, which can be hired for private events.
