Nando’s restaurant and Boom Battle Bar are the only firms still trading in the same building as The Light cinema on The Moor in Sheffield.

They are surrounded by large empty units including Pizza Express, The Confessional and Dough & Co. Zizzi and Gourmet Burger Kitchen were also based in the centre, signs show. The closures come amid tough times on the high street due to the pandemic and cost-of-living crisis.

Nando’s is an Afro-Portuguese chain famous for flame-grilled chicken in spicy chilli sauce. Boom Battle Bar opened in July following a £1m revamp and offers axe throwing, baseball batting cage, ‘beer pong’ and ice curling.
