Cattle Grid, the fast casual steakhouse chain, has secured a new location in London’s Battersea Rise for its fifth site. The group, which is led by Steve Novak and Shaun Grey, has secured the leasehold interest of The Establishment bar and restaurant on Battersea Rise, close to the Clapham Common Start, from Rising Star Leisure Limited. The company recently left its previous site in the area, which was taken by Franco Manca, the pizza chain led by David Page, the former chief executive of Pizza Express, and Italian chef Giuseppe Mascoli, for its fourth site in London Cattle Grid already operates sites in Balham, Leeds, Windsor and Kingston. The group, which unveiled an updated look at its Kingston site earlier this summer has also secured a unit at the Southside development in Wandsworth that will open next Spring. The Battersea Rise site covers approximately 3,175sq ft, which was assigned on the remainder of a 30-year lease at a passing rent of £105,000 per annum, with a premium of £100,000 paid for the free of tie lease. Rising Star Leisure continues to operate restaurant and bar venues in London neighbourhoods including the Underdog in Clapham and the Dime Bar and Restaurant in Battersea. Paul Tallentyre, director of Pubs and Bars at Davis Coffer Lyons, which acted on behalf of Rising Star, said, “Battersea is now home to some of the restaurant sector’s real shining stars, such as Soif, Draft House, Byron and Franco Manca. The rising number of multiple operators and quality independents taking sites has enabled Battersea to lead the charge for competitive rents in South West London and is now at the top of many operators’ lists. I’m sure Cattle Grid will perform exceptionally well here.”
