Latest brand to sign up at Forge Island

17.10.22 min read by

Local restaurant chain, Cow & Cream, has exchanged deal with us and will open a brand-new eatery on Forge Island in Rotherham town centre. 

The team behind the burger, shake and dessert restaurant, have created a concept that aims to combine the freshest ingredients cooked to order. What’s more, restaurant-goers will be able to completely personalise their food with a range of choices to make it their own. 

The signing is hot on the hooves of the Thistle Group deal, which will bring four exciting brands to Forge Island, alongside The Arc cinema and Travelodge. 

Excitement is building in Rotherham as the new Forge Island will bring a brand-new restaurant and leisure offer to the town centre. 

Forge Island will be set within an attractive public square with a new pedestrian bridge connecting the place to the wider town centre. 

Raife Gale said:

Since launching Forge Island on the market earlier this year, we’ve seen huge demand from occupiers that want to open in Rotherham. This is a ringing endorsement of our mission to work in partnership with the council, to bring a great choice of amenities and a social purpose to the places where we work.”
We can’t wait to get on site later this year to create an attractive leisure destination for the people of Rotherham. We believe that Forge Island will be the catalyst for further regeneration and investment in the town.”

Rotherham Council’s cabinet member for jobs and the local economy, Cllr Denise Lelliott, said: “It’s great news that local business Cow & Cream will be joining the likes of Arc Cinema and Travelodge on Forge Island. Cow & Cream, along with the other new cafes and restaurants will bring a variety of cuisines from around the world for residents and visitors to enjoy. 

“Forge Island will provide a gateway for residents to enjoy new – and old favourite – leisure facilities, including our wonderful green spaces and parks.” 

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