Kerbisher & Malt, the London-based contemporary fish and chip shop concept, has set out plans to add at least three further sites to its estate this year, after opening its third site in East Sheen yesterday.

The award-winning concept, which is owned by chef Saul Reuben and entrepreneur Nick Crossley, will open two further sites in Abbeville Road, Clapham, next month and in Rosebery Avenue, Farringdon, in May.

It said that further openings are planned in the capital for later in the year.

The group had secured the former Fish! Kitchen site in 170 Upper Richmond Road, for the opening of its new 30-cover restaurant and takeaway yesterday.

Crossley, said: “We’re excited to be opening two new sites in South London. We’re delighted with the new restaurant, as we want each Kerbisher & Malt to have its own distinct personality and we really feel we’ve achieved that here.”

The award-winning concept opened its second site, a 60-cover restaurant and takeaway outlet opposite Ealing town hall, at the end of 2012. The group opened its first site in 2011 in Brook Green, Hammersmith.

The concept offers a menu of both traditional and modern dishes, focused on fresh produce. It also features beers from local brewers, such as Meantime.
