Well done Charlie - nice work....

I don't think this is a bad outcome actually.... never heard of the company before... whilst you can say with much validity we don't need another restaurant, specificially not another Italian one, people will use it if it's good and actually it's better than the site being empty and better than The Puzzle (is it a pub or is it a bar? no it's closed sunbeam.)

A quick call to their head office, and they state it is most likely to be a Shecky's (?), which is a new line of theirs, specialising in....................chicken.

i was 'googling' away and found that 'shecky's' in USA is a chain of Bars - maybe just another red herring but the bars look nice enough... www.sheckys.com

Im not presuming these are the one of the same but hey its always 'good to google'..... ;)

The sheckys.com website looked like more of a guide to bars rather than a bar chain to me - a kind of girlie version of fancyapint.com. :blink:

I asked one of the builders as I rushed past on Saturday - "a big restaurant - a bit like Nandos"
