The Ivy Collection, the Richard Caring-backed group, has confirmed it will open a site in Guildford next year at the Tunsgate Quarter development.
The company, which will soon open Soho Ivy Brasserie on the ground floor of 30 Broadwick Street (formerly St Lawrence House), will take 8,500sq ft. located over two levels, including an alfresco dining terrace, at the regeneration scheme.
Caring is also believed to be in talks to take a space at 85 Piccadilly, again for a restaurant under his growing The Ivy brand.
The Ivy Collection currently operates seven sites in London, under its Grill, Brasserie and Café formats, plus a site in Bristol.
It also has sites lined up in Bath and at the One Tower Bridge development next to Potters Fields Park.
The Tunsgate Quarter will comprise 26 units in total, (18 retail units and eight restaurants), when it is scheduled to open in October 2017.
Terms have already been agreed on 50% of the scheme to premium restaurant, fashion and other lifestyle brands.
Frances Dore, director of marketing for The Ivy Collection said, “We are delighted to launch a brasserie in Tunsgate Quarter in Guildford. Our portfolio of restaurants attracts a varied audience wanting to dine in an accessible yet sophisticated environment.”
Cushman & Wakefield acted on the Tunsgate deal.
