Sea Cow, the premium fish and chip restaurant chain, will open a new store in Stoke Newington, London, in October. The company, owned by brothers Dan and Paul Rigby, has acquired the freehold interest in the property. The group will invest £55,000 converting it to the Sea Cow format, which also features a fishmonger’s counter. It will be Sea Cow’s third outlet, following the closure last month of a recently-opened outlet in Fulham. Dan Rigby told M&C Report: “The site hadn’t been making any money as the rental rates were too high.” The latest Sea Cow will have 50 covers, and like its other stores will offer a wide range of fresh fish displayed at a wet counter to eat in or takeaway. Average spend per head at Sea Cow, which is also located in Clapham and Dulwich, is £12. The closed Fulham site has reverted back to Loch Fyne Restaurants, the previous lessee. It said it was looking at a number of different options for the location, including a sale or new concept.
