Las Iguanas, Joe's Kitchen and Bella Italia are the latest big names to sign up to Bournemouth’s new £50m leisure complex, BH2.

They will be joining Nando’s, Handmade Burger Co, Coast to Coast, Ask Italian and Frankie and Benny’s who have already been confirmed as tenants.

Others lined-up include TGI Fridays and Prezzo.

Las Iguanas serves Latin American food and cocktails and the new restaurant will be the first in Dorset for the chain which has several eateries across the UK including Portsmouth and Reading.

The menu features dishes such as fajitas, jerk BBQ glazed ribs, empanadas and chilli.

Joe’s Kitchen takes inspiration from Borough Market and has seven restaurants in total, serving burgers, salads and pasta dishes to fish and chips.

It also boasts six coffee houses, including one at Bournemouth Airport.

It describes itself as “no fuss; nothing fancy - we offer great tasting food, cooked by people who care, and served just how you like it.”

The addition of Bella Italia to BH2 will see the chain return to Bournemouth following the closure of its restaurant in Christchurch Road.

The complex, which boasts 16-17 sites for chain restaurants, could open as early as December once restaurateurs have come in to complete their own "fitting out", from October.

Ninety per cent of the site is now let, with a few remaining units set to be taken up by other high street eateries.

Yesterday the Daily Echo revealed the development, which is currently known as West Central, would be officially called BH2.

Chris Dymond, director of developers Licet, said: "We wanted a name that’s easy to remember, one that is short, simple and snappy, with BH2 emerging as the most natural choice as it also happens to be our postcode".

The Legal and General-funded site includes 10 Odeon cinema screens - one of which is claimed will be the largest on the south coast.

There are 216 car parking spaces underneath the complex which visitors can only enter and exit by lifts and stairs into the centre to "capture the clients".

BH2 is due to be unveiled early in 2017.
