Operators including The Big Easy, Japan Centre and Mac & Wild are believed to be in talks to take units at Westfield’s £1bn extension to its shopping scheme in London’s Shepherd’s Bush.

MCA understands that Creative Restaurant Group, the company behind Pachamama, the Peruvian restaurant in Marylebone, and ETM Group are also in talks on units at the scheme which is due for completion next year.

As previously revealed by MCA, Adam Breeden, the former chief executive of All Star Lanes and co-founder of Bounce, the ping pong concept, is planning to launch a new golf-based restaurant and bar concept called Puttshack at the development.

Breeden, who also co-founded the now two-strong, darts-based concept Flight Club, is believed to have teamed up with twin brothers Steve and Dave Jolliffe, the co-founders of World Golf Systems, the driving range business, which licensed the TopGolf venues, to develop Puttshack.

It is thought that Breeden’s former company All Star Lanes is also in talks to take space at the extension.
