Worth waiting for

On the 31st March 1998, ‘John Lewis Cribbs Causeway’ opened to the public for the very first time. The three years of waiting, and the fraught couple of days before hand, were clearly all worth it. No sooner had the main doors opened, the customers started streaming in and immediately appreciated what the wait and the build up had been for. Of particular resonance was the ‘Place to Eat’ restaurant. With seating for over 300 over 3 distinct rooms, customers were drawn to its cracking menu and fantastic views offered of Filton Airfield.
