March 5, 2021

Davis Coffer Lyons have found a new tenant for The Magdala at South Hill Park, Hampstead. The property is located opposite Hampstead Heath Railway Station and is situated within close proximity to the local commercial centre comprising a parade of shops, restaurants and cafes. The property became famous as the public house where Ruth Ellis, the last women to be executed in Britain shot her partner.

The pub has been let to Twickenham Green Taverns who along with other companies operate the following public houses, The Lyric in Soho, The Express Tavern in Kew Bridge, The Sussex Arms in Twickenham, The Corner House in Windsor,  The Albion in Kingston, The Antelope in Surbiton and The Watermans Arms in Barnes. They have taken on a new Free of Tie 15 year lease on the ground floor and lower ground floor of The Magdala.

Twickenham Green Taverns will be opening The Magdala doors in the near future after a substantial refurbishment and look to operate the property as a wet led public house with a traditional food serving.

DCL acted on behalf of the landlord, Mulberry One Capital Limited. The public house was last operating in 2014 as a traditional public house with a significant food serving.

Connie Start of Davis Coffer Lyons, said, “The Magdala is in an exceptionally popular urban location in an idyllic setting, with immediate access to Hampstead Heath. Twickenham Green Taverns is well versed with the location with the owner having grown up around the corner from the property. They have started their refurbishment and are looking forward to opening its doors to the local community and beyond.”
