“The ambition behind LAVO. is to take our passion for great food and drink and combine this with stunning interiors to create a unique environment for the people of Scunthorpe.

“As well as the restaurant transformation, we have more than doubled the size of the bar area. Together, these offer an elegant, flexible space which can be enjoyed throughout the day and all night long, whether you are visiting on a dinner date or as part of a larger celebration.

“There is a real buzz around independent retail in Scunthorpe currently. It’s been a long journey, but we can’t wait to join the fantastic businesses here and serve that first drink to a customer.

“We would also like to share our thanks to North Lincolnshire Council. From the moment we first approached them they have fully embraced our vision and got behind the project, providing advice at every turn and helping us to access vital funding.”
