Solihull shopping centre, Mell Square, has announced the return of indoor dining and the reopening of more of its cafes, bars and restaurants, as well as children’s role play centre, Play Lane, following the further easing of COVID restrictions.

 During the pandemic, Mell Square centre management have undertaken extensive planning to ensure the continued wellbeing of its visitors, retailers and staff. There are a number of reminders regarding government guidance throughout Mell Square, including advisory signage and interactive floor graphics. Hand sanitising stations are also available in Poplar Way.

Over the last few years, Mell Square has expanded its food and beverage offering, which now also comprises several independent businesses including Café Isabella close to House of Fraser and Vita, which offers delicious cakes, desserts, coffee and sparkling wine, that are all now open for indoor dining. In addition to the cafes, bars and restaurants, children’s role play centre and cafe, Play Lane in Drury Arcade, has also reopened.

Paul Round, centre manager at Mell Square, said: “Our food and drink offering appeals to a wide range of ages and tastes, so the return of indoor dining is fantastic news for those who wish to eat, drink and socialise again in Mell Square. The square has had a real buzz about it again lately and it’s brilliant to see the town centre returning to some sort of normality.

“As Mell Square becomes busier, we want to ensure everyone feels safe and comfortable, so we urge visitors to wear a face covering in all stores unless exempt and remember to follow the ‘hands, face, space’ guidance.”
