Heron City has retained Davis Coffer Lyons to help it attract UK and international restaurant operators for its European developments.

It is looking for restaurants to occupy complexes in Madrid, Spain, Lille, France, Stockholm, Sweden and a new opening in Barcelona, Spain.

DCL said it also expected to be working with brand owners to find suitable local franchisees for wider roll-outs.

Heron is rumoured as a potential bidder for the Dome site in Greenwich
