A new restaurant has opened in Harrogate today, despite the economic challenges facing the hospitality industry because of coronavirus.

The Fashion House Bistro was set up by local fashion photographer David Dresser - who told Stray FM he's had the idea for a while.

It's situated on the corner of Swan Road.

 

David Dresser told Nick Hancock at Breakfast he's feeling positive:

"I was about to sign the lease literally the day they locked down.

"I've got a very supportive landlord, he's a very nice guy. I thought 'I'm gonna go for it' - this won't last forever.

"I thought - it's a great spot and I just thought it had terrific potential."

David is planning to make use of large outdoor spaces to enable customers to dine safely, following social distancing protocols.

Indoors, the venue will be operating at approximately 50% capacity, seating 40 instead of 80, with 30-40 people being seated outside.
