Croma was launched in 2000 by ex Pizza Express team Andrew Bullock, Bob Dunn and Lottie Hollinworth. It began in Manchester city centre, in a mere shell of a building on Clarence Street, and after major structural refurbishment we launched in November of that year. We promptly won the City Life Newcomer Award 2000, and continued building Croma's reputation as one of Manchester city centre's leading independent eateries.
We opened our Chorlton restaurant in 2005 along with Kirsty Marshall, closely followed by our Prestwich restaurant in 2007.
In June 2012, we opened our first restaurant in partnership with the ODEON Cinema group in Tunbridge Wells, Kent and our second opened in Loughborough January 2013.
Our priority has always been to provide affordable and good quality food in stylish surroundings, which we hope we've achieved and maintained over the last twelve years.
