The McGilveray’s team have transformed the 2,147 sq. ft. restaurant at Fox Valley into a stunning space with a stylish nod to the area’s history as home of the paragon umbrella frame, developed by Samuel Fox.

Umbrellas have been suspended from the ceiling and vintage artwork reflecting the history of the steelworks has also been installed throughout the restaurant.

A special opening event launched the restaurant on Thursday March 21st with husband and wife team Alan and Wendy McGilveray inviting members of their family to perform the ribbon cutting on the new establishment bearing their name.
