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.

Czech Republic: Reopening of shopping centres

The great majority of shopping centres should reopen on Thursday 3 December. The footfall and revenue figures show that customers have not given up on visiting shopping centres in the long-term perspective or changed their shopping habits dramatically. Following the reopening after the first wave of the corona crisis, both performance indicators grew again, and revenue even exceeded last year’s figures in a year-on-year comparison. The impact on footfall and turnover was lower in the second wave, with footfall slightly growing in recent weeks. Considering that Christmas is coming, we can expect customers to return to shopping centres quickly as soon as they are allowed to, resulting in an exceptional increase in footfall and revenue.
