Four new food brands coming to Rotherham’s Forge Island

17.10.22 3 min read by Ryan Devlin

We agreed a deal with Thistle Group – the owner of the four brands – which will transform the place into a vibrant food destination for the whole community to enjoy. 

First up is Casa Peri Peri, which will bring its own style of Portuguese and Southern African flare, created by Masterchef star, Bobby Geetha. 

Estabulo Rodizio / Sakku Samba is a dual-branded concept honouring the Gaucho style of cooking while at the same time celebrating a fusion of Japanese-Brazilian cuisine. It will be the first time that the two concepts are brought together under one roof. 

Caffé Noor completes the pack and is a revolutionary luxury coffee shop with a fundamental difference as 50% of all profits will be donated to local community organisations to support vulnerable people. 

With boutique cinema, The Arc, and Travelodge, already signed up to anchor Forge Island, excitement is building with construction due to start on site this October. 

The new Forge Island will be set within an attractive public square with a new pedestrian bridge connecting the scheme to the wider town centre to create a real sense of place. 

Raife Gale, said:

At Muse, we’re all about bringing choice and social purpose to the towns and cities we work in. Bringing these four brands to Forge Island demonstrates what we’re looking to achieve here, and we can’t wait to get on site in October.”
Working closely with the council, we’re creating a brand-new restaurant and leisure offer for Rotherham. Together, we’re driving inward investment and growth to support the local economy, providing opportunities for local people which will hopefully kickstart further investment and development in the town.”

Rotherham Council’s cabinet member for jobs and the local economy, Cllr Denise Lelliott, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming these new food establishments to the flagship Forge Island development which will provide a unique and exciting experience for residents and visitors. It is an exciting time for Rotherham as we see our regeneration works begin to take shape.” 

Forge Island is a new family-friendly place in Rotherham town centre that we’re bringing forward with Rotherham Council.
