A new curry house is to open in the former Artisan restaurant on Sandygate Road.

Work is currently being undertaken on the building. We don’t know yet of the planned opening date but the work should take around 3 weeks.

Ali the owner lives in Bradford and intends to employ a manager to run his new Crosspool restaurant.

Over the years the restaurant in that location has been known as Thyme, Smith’s and most recently Artisan, which closed in January. The upstairs area was also reinvented under different themes including fish restaurant Catch and budget eatery Canteen.

Older residents may remember the building operating as an Indian restaurant before chef and entrepreneur Richard Smith took it on.
