This question was asked on another thread: "does anyone know who the new owners are of laughing gravy? the website looks nice. and if they've got rid of the weird, OTT office chairs the last owners had they're already onto a winner."
The new owner is an SE1er and a member of this forum. In fact, he found out it was up for grabs on here.
A lot of work is going on and I think it's due to open around the second week of August. I'm sure he'll come on and post soonish but meanwhile, I can assure you those dreadful chairs are gone, gone, gone, and it's going to look fabulous.
La Martinet, you beat me to it. I wanted to come on and thank you/the SE1 forum for helping me find the Gravy and get it back on its feet again.
I posted up on here nearly a year ago that I was looking for a restaurant in the area and thanks to the SE1 forum I found out that the Gravy might be available (a place that has always had fond memories for me).
So a big thank you to the SE1 forum - I was really passionate about opening a local restaurant being a resident (and was starting to fear I'd have to look outside of SE1).
JW - didn't you put up a survey up here too on what people wanted in a restaurant? Has that helped your thinking? Would be interested to know what sort of food and style of restaurant you're planning? Good luck with it all.
