Just a quick post to see what thoughts everyone here had on bars and restaurants in the area.
We are a small independent company looking to open our first
place in the Southwark area close to London Bridge, and since we started looking for a property last year have found it extremely
difficult to find somewhere that suits our needs.
Last month we came across a great site near to London Bridge station. However, the company that owns it is a large commercial developer and have told us that they are only looking to deal with large chains like Wetherspoons / All Bar One
or alternatively William Hill bookmakers, which is obviously frustrating as it's difficult to compete with their size / power.
We're a bit frustrated and stuck about what to do so thought we'd post on here. Any comments / advice would be greatly appreciated.
