New jobs are coming to Cobham thanks to a well-known chain restaurant.

French brasserie group Côte is due to open its doors in the town this spring as part of a nationwide expansion plan.

Up to 40 jobs could be created, as the company adds to its 47 sites.

Harald Samuelsson, joint managing director, said: “We are very much looking forward to opening up our new restaurant in the heart of Cobham and introducing our unique dining experience to the town.

“It is a vibrant place with huge economic potential.”

The company recently announced a 28 per cent increase in profits.

A recruitment day will take place at Côte’s Esher restaurant on Wednesday, March 5, between 2pm and 6pm.
