Shelley Sandzer signs Megan’s in Surbiton

Leading specialist UK leisure property agency, Shelley Sandzer, acting on behalf of a private landlord, has leased the 4,300 sq ft restaurant at 38 Victoria Road in Surbiton to Megan’s, the independent all-day eatery.

Since opening first as an antiques shop in 2002 on the King’s Road, Megan’s has developed into a neighbourhood focused café and restaurant.  Its Mediterranean-inspired menu brings together brunch classics, such as Eggs Benedict and Shakshouka, mezze, grills, and ‘posh’ kebabs.

The new two-floor Surbiton site will be the brand’s ninth, including the recently opened St Alban’s restaurant, their first outside London.  Like all Megan’s, the Surbiton town centre location will be dog-friendly and open from morning to late evening.  The restaurant is set to open in later this year.

Nick Weir, Co-Managing Director at Shelley Sandzer, said: “There are opportunities aplenty in the London suburbs now; more people working from home and increasing efforts to shop and dine locally means we are seeing deals with great value for landlords and operators alike. Megan’s understand this and has an offer that suits – a quality neighbourhood-focused restaurant that will add to Surbiton’s appeal to locals.”

This news follows the publication of Shelley Sandzer’s ten-point guide to help landlords and operators negotiate ‘win-win’ leases following the turmoil created by coronavirus across the hospitality sector.
