The Greyhound Pub in Victoria to Become New Mediterranean Restaurant

January 16, 2017

The Greyhound Pub close to Victoria Station in Central London has been let to Omar Shaaban Enterprises Ltd to become a new Mediterranean fusion restaurant. The ground floor and basement ‘lock up’ on 13 Cambridge Street, was let on a new 20 year lease through leisure property specialists Davis Coffer Lyons, acting on behalf of the private landlord.

The new restaurant, ‘Omar’s Place’ plans to target the area’s affluent corporate and residential demographic, with a contemporary Mediterranean restaurant and bar with a modern twist. The new tenant, Omar Shaaban, is a young but experienced restaurateur who cut his teeth in his family’s hospitality business which includes a boutique hotel, restaurants, bars and nightclub.

Keith Goodwin, Associate Director, Davis Coffer Lyons Pubs and Bars team said that the firm had received multiple offers for the property which resulted in a very competitive bidding process and a letting substantially in excess of the £45,000pa asking rent. The premises are set within a four storey Grade II Listed Victorian corner property, which currently provides seating for circa 60 covers as well as additional outside space.

Keith Goodwin said, ““It is great to see that The Greyhound, which had been closed to trade, will be returned as a licenced premises to this, predominantly residential, community. This area of central London has recently a welcomed a string of reputable eateries, including Franco Manca, Bluebird Café, Bleecker Street Burger, and Jason Atherton’s Hai Cenato. We wish Omar and his team every success with their new restaurant.””
