Westgate Oxford announces plans for Westgate Social

With less than five months to go until opening, Westgate Oxford announces it will be home to Westgate Social, a new food and leisure experience. Mini-golf brand Junkyard Golf Club has confirmed as the anchor leisure operator at Westgate Social, alongside six food outlets.

Westgate Social will provide a shared eating and leisure environment with freshly prepared food and a casual price point. Customers will be able to individually choose food from multiple brands and eat it together in a vibrant, communal space. Vendors already confirmed include Mexican restaurant Benito’s Hat, Indian street food vendor Rola Wala and Shawa Lebanese’s Grill, with more to be announced in the coming weeks.

Westgate Social will be on the ground level of the new 74,322 sq m development and will be anchored by Junkyard Golf Club, which offers scrapyard themed mini-golf for those who love quirky props, neon lights and cocktails. With something for everyone, Westgate Social will provide a relaxed leisure space for people to experience when they aren’t browsing the shops or dining and drinking on the roof terrace.

The £440 million Westgate Oxford development is scheduled on 24 October, and its retail and leisure mix has been bolstered further by the new additions of international brands Timberland and Vans, as well as best of British retailers Neal’s Yard Remedies, Hobbs, Oliver Bonas and Loake Shoemakers.

'With Westgate Social we aim to lead the charge for next generation retail destinations by bringing our scheme in line with the rapidly changing lifestyle habits of UK and global consumers. Junkyard Golf Club is an innovative brand that has responded to customers’ increasing demand for high quality and unique experiences. We’re excited to have them on board, along with the other six world-class retailers we have announced. We look forward to opening our doors in less than five months on 24 October,' says Emma Mees, senior portfolio manager at Landsec.
