A NEW restaurant coming to Stockton Heath has announced its opening date.

Yara will be opening its doors on Thursday, February 1.

Diners can find a ‘true taste of the Middle East’ at Yara, which offers a ‘modern take’ on traditional Lebanese and Syrian cuisine.

According to its website, its passion is providing guests with an authentic Middle East dining experience, delivering bold flavours, succulent food, and a warm welcome.

Work has been under way on the site for a number of weeks.

Yara will be based on London Road in the former home of Expedition which announced it was closing back in May.

Yara has restaurants in Altrincham, Alderley Edge, Cheadle, Chorlton, and Whitefield.
