Hungry Tesco shoppers will be able to stop off at a new Giraffe restaurant if plans are approved.

Tesco, which acquired the chain for £46 million in March, wants to build the restaurant in its existing Broadfields car park.

The supermarket giant would build the food outlet where the Tomra Recycling facility is currently located. The recycling unit would be relocated.

At the family friendly restaurant you can expect to pay £9.95 for a burger and £15.95 for a steak.

While kids meal prices range from £3.95 for Italian pizza bites and fries to £5.95 for grilled chicken breast.

The proposed restaurant would be a modern design similar to surrounding buildings and will include an outdoor children’s play area.

Timpson, the cobbler and key cutter store, is another unit to have opened up in the Tesco car park recently.

If approved Giraffe would provide direct competition to the new Harvester restaurant opening in Broadfields Retail Park next month.

Consultation is currently open on the plans until August 30.
