American 1950s style restaurant Dean’s Diner became the latest firm to open its doors at St Stephen’s Place Leisure Park in Trowbridge.

The restaurant joined Nando’s, Prezzo, Frankie & Benny’s, Odeon and Premier Inn by becoming the newest addition to the award-winning St Stephen’s Place, which was launched last year.

Enhanced by a retro jukebox, menu choices range from classic hamburgers, hot dogs and milkshakes through to house specials such as Dean's All Day Brunch.

Paul Ashton, 25, who was recruited as general manager from over 300 applicants, said: “I’m a local lad, and have lived in Trowbridge all my life. Being given the opportunity to work locally in something I enjoy is truly fantastic.

“I’m confident Dean’s Diner is going to be a great addition to St Stephen’s Place, and hope that the local community in Trowbridge will enjoy everything we have to offer."

Dean’s Diner will soon be joined Mexican restaurant Chiquito, which has been announced by Legal & General as the next addition to St Stephen’s Place Leisure Park.

The chain is due to start fitting out in mid-July, with Chiquito occupying a 4,000 sq ft unit on a 25-year lease. It is expected to create 40 new jobs.
