Baker & Spice, the Patisserie Valerie-owned brand, is set to strengthen its presence in central London, with an opening in Marylebone.

The five-strong company is understood to have lined up a site at the 66 Chiltern Place development in Marylebone Village.

The group announced earlier this year that it has secured a further site in the capital at the Battersea Power Station line-up.

The brand, which currently operates four sites in London and one in Oxford, was acquired by Patisserie Holdings in 2009.
