DCL Completes Pub Sale for ETM Group

August 1, 2011

Davis Coffer Lyons’ Pub Team has assigned the leasehold interest of The Empress of India, in East London’s Victoria Park, on behalf of ETM Group, the London-based gastropub operator led by Tom and Ed Martin.

Michael Burman, formerly of Realpubs owned by Greene King, acquired the free-of-tie lease which has 22 years remaining. Burman’s was previously the General Manager at Realpubs’ Duke of Sussex in Chiswick and the North London Tavern in Kilburn.

The Empress of India is located in one of London’s most fashionable drinking spots, known locally as ‘The Village’, which has attracted a wide variety of businesses over recent years.

The ‘end of terrace’ premises include an open plan ground floor area of around 1,600sqft, and a terraced area to the front for al fresco dining.
