Yummy Pubs acquires Hammersmith site to launch new seafood restaurant concept, ‘Faber’

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has announced that the long-term lease on the former Villagio restaurant site in Hammersmith has been acquired by national pub co, Yummy Pubs.

The site, which occupies a prime corner location in the centre of Hammersmith, is set to undergo a complete refit and will reopen as Faber, debuting Yummy’s new British seafood restaurant concept.

Anthony Pender, Founder of Yummy Pubs comments, “We’re very excited to announce that we have created a new British seafood restaurant concept as part of our Yummy Pub Collection, and we will be working alongside Christie & Co to obtain a pipeline of sites to roll out the concept over the next five years. The character and composition of this property in Hammersmith makes it the perfect pilot site and we look forward to bringing the new restaurant to life.”

The deal was brokered by David Wilson, Associate Director in Christie & Co’s London Pubs & Restaurants team. He comments, “We are delighted to have secured Anthony Pender and Yummy Pub Company as the new tenant for this prime restaurant site and can’t wait to see it turned into the new ‘fresh fish for all’ restaurant concept, Faber.

“This sale is the latest transaction we have completed with Yummy Pub Company, following the disposals of the Gorringe Park in Tooting and the Wiremill in Lingfield last year, and we look forward to working with them on future deals.”
