Peter Cova, the owner of The Crown pub in London’s Twickenham, has secured his second site in the capital, the former Sammy’s American Bar and Grill in Teddington High Street. He has relaunched the pub as The Royal Oak, after a redecoration of the ground and basement property, which totals 3,150sq ft. A new 25-year lease was agreed off an asking rent of £50,000 per annum. Davis Coffer Lyons acted on the deal.
