Serving ribs, steaks, chicken, pizzas, burgers and hot dogs, a new American-style restaurant is coming to Medway.

Hancock’s American Restaurant and Bar is due to open at Pier 5, Chatham Maritime at the start of May and will create 25 jobs, including management roles.

As well as food, it will also serve a range of cocktails and American craft beers.

Co-founder, David Chick, said: “Hancock’s is excited to announce that we are bringing our concept to such a great location giving people the chance to enjoy our great American meals in new surroundings overlooking the water.”

He said the 500,000 restaurant will be modern and dramatic in design and will use the latest technology to enhance customers experience.

Hancock’s is the latest business to move into the development at Chatham Maritime, leaving only a few units vacant.

Already in place are Flip Out trampoline centre and TruGym, as well as Starbucks, Zippers, Creams, Burger Priest and Wok&Go.

Also set to open later this year is a Shepherd Neame pub and a planning application has been submitted for a tanning salon.
