The Stable, the pizza and cider concept in which Fuller’s has a majority stake, is set to open its first London site.

According to The Times the group has secured the Rhythm Factory site in Whitechapel which is expected to open in October.

The concept was launched by Richard and Nikki Cooper, who sold a 51% stake to Fuller’s for £7.3m last June.

The Stable recently opened a larger unit in Bath and will open in The Square, Winchester in July, followed by an opening later in the summer on Above Bar Street in Southampton.
