The Food Pit, an exciting new food quarter, has signed 3,500 sq ft for The Riverwalk, the £30 million redevelopment on the banks of the River Wear.

The new food hall concept is fully let, with seven food and drink operators including; Gourmet Burgers, Fish & Chips, Mano Thai, Durham Sausage Company, Bojangles coffee shop, Spread of the Med and Mr Waffle, all showcasing best of the North East’s street food scene.


This exciting mix of operators are situated around communal seating, smaller tables and a main bar and allow visitors to sample a wide range of food and flavours in one sitting.

Nick Berry, Partner at Clearbell Capital, commented: “The street food scene is increasingly popular in cities across the country, providing something for everyone and creating a vibrant hub. The Food Pit has created this unique platform right in the heart of The Riverwalk, with a list of carefully curated operators that complement each other and give consumers a different experience on each visit.”

The Food Pit will be fully open with all its operators on 22 November.
