Mr Foggs Comes In To Land on St Martins Lane
February 10, 2015
Covent Gardens exciting drinking and dining offer continues to go from strength to strength after Davis Coffer Lyons the leisure specialists secured Inception Group to operate the former Angel & Crown public house on St Martins Lane. The grade 2 listed, three-storey former pub which is owned by Shaftesbury PLC – will reopen as Foggs Tavern, building on the success of its sister venue Mr Foggs in Mayfair.
Covent Gardens eating and drinking renaissance continues, with a number of high profile restaurant lettings in nearby Seven Dials and around Covent Garden Piazza, such as Marcus Wareings Tredwells on Upper St Martins Lane, soon to be joined by a new concept from the team behind Bocca di Lupo.
Kate Taylor, Associate Director at Davis Coffer Lyons added: Weve seen a surge of interest from operators in Covent Garden, as it continues to thrive as a destination for eating, drinking, shopping and entertainment. This, coupled with the scarcity of A4 opportunities of this nature, gave rise to an almost unprecedented level of interest in the Angel & Crown. Foggs Tavern was felt to be the perfect complement to its Theatreland location and an exciting addition to St Martins Lane.
Charlie Gilkes, Inception Group Founder, sums up the project: Inception Group are thrilled to have secured this site against so much competition. We are very excited about bringing our Mr Foggs brand to this prime part of central London.
