We are delighted to announce that we have started working with a new Fish Restaurant in Manchester called Sole Restaurant. Sole is based in Manchester and run by Simon Pogson – also director of one of Manchester’s most successful digital media companies, Agenda Media Limited, recently relocated to the Northern Quarter of Manchester. Simon has seized upon an opportunity to fulfill his life-long ambition of opening a restaurant and R’n’B bar in the basement.

Sole Restaurant is located at the base of a new contemporary 7 storey building which adjoins to a four storey weaver cottage dated back to 1712. Head Chef of Sole Restaurant is Simon Salt, winner of Lancashire Chef of the Year three times, and quarter finalist of Professional Master Chef.

Simon was introduced to Johnson Reed by the supplier of the sound system, with a requirement to finance £20,000. After detailed discussions with Johnson Reed, Simon realised we were the right company to provide all of the catering finance and furniture finance, because the current provider is not an established operator in the leisure and catering equipment sector.

Johnson Reed financed £20,000, allowing Simon to keep valuable cash reserves back to ensure a flying start in 2012.

We were thrilled with our Christmas Party held at the Sole Restaurant, the food and environment were fantastic, and we highly recommend to all fish lovers.
