The first customers have tucked into a selection of ribs, burgers and wings at Corby’s newest restaurant.
RBW had its official opening in Corby town centre on Wednesday, with invited guests including the mayor Peter McEwan able to sample items from the new menu.
We are very excited that they have chosen Corby for its first ventureCllr Peter McEwan
As well as ribs, burgers and wings, diners can enjoy various hotdogs, skinny ‘skin-on’ fries, desserts, milkshakes and a range of soft and alcoholic drinks.
RBW is a new concept for the South African Spur group and its new restaurant as part of Corby’s cinema complex is the first in the UK.
Cllr McEwan helped cut the ribbon at the official opening and said: “RBW is a new concept for the South African Spur group and we are very excited that they have chosen Corby for its first venture.
“It is bringing something new to the town and I am sure it will be a big hit for residents.
“Congratulations to RBW and we wish you a very long and successful future here in Corby.”
Alongside the red, white and black decor adorning the restaurant walls are newspaper cuttings from 1967, the year the Spur group was established, and a graffiti-inspired mural created by street artist John McKeown.
It includes references to Corby’s steel production days in the old Stewart and Lloyds works, the Sundew dragline, Rockingham Speedway and Corby Cube.
RBW director David Maich described the new restaurant as having a ‘cool’ look and feel to it and said they have taken on a ‘fantastic bunch’ of people from Corby to serve their customers.
RBW’s official opening follows the recent opening of Nando’s next to the cinema and comes ahead of Prezzo opening for business in the same complex on Tuesday (June 30).
