Gursh Atwal, who is a member of the family helping with the design and setup of the Warwick Leif, said: "The Warwick site is being run by my son Thomas Atwal and I am advising him with the new site.

"The Leamington branch has been open since 2012 and we have been looking for another place for a number of years but the right property never came up. Then we found this place, which is in the right location.

"Leif in Leamington has a great reputation and we are replicating similar things here with live music, the same menu and the same setup.

"We posted on social media about our opening and we have had a great response and feedback so we just hope now people will come through the door.

"Leif has a relaxed atmosphere, it's easy going, not formal and we are excited to welcome people through the door."

Leif will be opening at 7pm tonight.
