Mon 14th Apr 2014 - Breaking News - Fuller’s acquires two freehold riverside pubs
Fuller’s acquires two freehold riverside pubs: Brewer and retailer Fuller Smith & Turner has completed the purchase of two new freehold sites on the banks of the Thames in London. A site in Fulham Reach will open later in 2014 and a second new site downriver in Greenwich will open in early 2015. The Fulham Reach site is part of a new development and will include a large, south-facing terrace with views over Hammersmith Bridge and the Harrods’ Depository. It will be called the Tideway and will open before Christmas. The pub will provide a second Fuller’s site on the historic Boat Race course, joining the Dove in Hammersmith. The Greenwich site is located close to the Cutty Sark and is Fuller’s second site in Greenwich. It is part of the New Capital Quay development and will be called the Sail Loft. It is scheduled to open in the spring of 2015 and will include riverside terraces with views over the Thames and across to Canary Wharf. Fuller’s chief executive, Simon Emeny, said: “Combined with the opening of One over the Ait on Kew Bridge, which will open later this year, we will have at least three new riverside pubs along the Thames in the coming financial year. Waterside pubs always prove popular, as illustrated by the success of Cams Mill, on the Fareham Creek estuary in Hampshire, which we opened in late 2013. We are delighted to acquire these freehold sites and, by spring 2015, anyone travelling by boat from Greenwich to Kew will pass six Fuller’s riverside pubs – the Sail Loft, the Banker, the Tideway, the Dove, the Bell & Crown and One over the Ait. The Fuller’s acquisitions team has been doing a fantastic job. Combined with the Admiralty on Trafalgar Square, which will open this autumn, London’s Pride at Heathrow T2 in June and One over the Ait, we have five very high profile sites opening this year. It’s an exciting time for Fuller’s and we will continue to seek out new acquisition opportunities in the coming months and years.”
