Work On Swansea’s Marco Pierre White Restaurant Progressing Well

Plans for the new Marco Pierre White restaurant in Swansea are progressing well with the owners busy working behind the scenes in view of opening later in the year once the Covid-19 lockdown, that's gripped the country, has been lifted.

Located at J-Shed in the popular SA1 area of the city, the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill is replacing what was La Parrilla and occupies a prime position overlooking Swansea's waterside.

Creating in the region of 40 full and part-time jobs, it brings to life Pierre White's own philosophy of what he describes as 'affordable glamour' and includes signature steaks, and timeless English and French classics.

The new restaurant will include approximately 130 dedicated internal covers. The exciting plans offer a newly configured bar and lounge, as well as an external drinking and dining area wrapped around the entire property. A private dining area will also be available for hire, with an exclusive external terrace.
