The British restaurant chain is setting up shop at intu Chapelfield in the city centre and is due to open in March 2017.

Construction work has already begun on the outside unit, formerly home to shoe shops Office, which is now located inside the shopping centre, and Dune.

A licensing application was submitted on the chain's behalf to Norwich City Council earlier this year and included proposed opening times of 11am to 12.30am, seven days a week.

Paul McCarthy, general manager of intu Chapelfield, said at the time: 'Byron is a popular, family-friendly restaurant brand and we're pleased to welcome them to intu Chapelfield's vibrant dining offer – it gives customers another great reason to visit.'
