Next Generation Harry Ramsden now open in Blackpool Landmark

The next generation Harry Ramsden restaurant opens at the iconic Blackpool Tower and introduces the brand’s new look to the people of Blackpool and the millions who visit the town each year.

“Harry Ramsden at the Tower” features a modern take on seaside design which has been specially created for Blackpool and its iconic landmark. As well as a wide ranging menu of fresh, cooked to order rotisserie and grilled seafood and meat dishes, together with Harry’s world famous fish and chips and much more, the new outlet provides takeaway as well as sit in facilities for over 200 diners. In addition, the new look outlet includes Gin & Craft Beer bars and a standalone Cocktail Bar for adults as well as Smoothie and Juicing stations, ideal for all ages, from the youngest to the oldest member of the family and everyone in between.

Harry’s is moving into the next phase of its evolution”

£2.1m has been invested in the venture by the owners of Harry Ramsden’s with Blackpool Council contributing £0.4m toward building works and Councillor Mark Smith, Cabinet Member for Business and Economic Development said “The private investment being made in Blackpool’s most prominent public asset and the jobs it creates is yet another demonstration of the steps the town has taken in creating a vibrant economy. This is a clear message to potential developers – Blackpool is the town to invest in.”Joe Teixeira, CEO of Harry Ramsden’s comments; “Harry’s is moving into the next phase of its evolution, where we book-end our classic and most loved favourite dishes with a new range of innovative, tasty and great value options served in modern day, seaside surroundings, and we are thrilled to showcase this brand new face of Harry Ramsden’s in the North’s favourite town. We believe Blackpool’s most iconic landmark is the ideal location from which to unveil the modern day face of Harry’s, as both brands combine the proudest of heritages wrapped up firmly in a family focus. Just as the Tower itself recently enjoyed a major revamp, with this new opening we’ve unveiled a totally new look which retains all the key elements which Harry himself introduced, but better reflects the modern day face of Harry Ramsden’s.”

Kate Shane, Head of the Merlin Blackpool Cluster added “The new restaurant and eateries perfectly complement the Tower attractions, enhances the customers experience significantly and of course completes the ground floor refurbishment of this very special building. This development represents yet another feature cementing Blackpool as the UK’s number one family destination. ”

Harry Ramsden at the Tower has created 100 new jobs, in addition to safeguarding 30 existing jobs in the town and Joe Teixeira concludes; “In order to fill the 100 new roles this outlet is creating, a series of recruitment days was held at the Tower throughout April and May, and the quality and quantity of candidates was exceptional. So, with our fantastic new team, modern day look and greatly enhanced menu, I believe we will not only continue to welcome our loyal customer base, but also introduce Harry Ramsden’s to a whole new generation of fans.” 

Harry Ramsden at the Tower was opened on Monday 25 July by Mayor of Blackpool Councillor Kath Rowson at the special VIP event which was also attended by Mayor of Fylde Councillor Christine Akeroyd and Deputy Mayor of Wyre, Councillor Emma Anderton along with 250 invited guests.
