Brakspear and Claude Bosi to open Fulham pub

Brakspear has bought the Malt House pub in Fulham and plans to run it in conjunction with Claude Bosi's Jolly Fine Restaurants, which operates the two-Michelin starred Hibiscus restaurant and Fox & Grapes gastropub in Wimbledon.

The pub, just off Fulham Road, will receive a £750,000 refurbishment funded jointly by Brakspear and Jolly Fine Restaurants. It is Brakspear's sixth acquisition in two months and its 147th overall.

Tom Davies, Brakspear chief executive (pictured), said: "The Malt House is a landmark west London site with enormous potential. By partnering with one of the most talented and well-known restaurateurs in the business, we are confident of turning it into an outstanding food pub with letting bedrooms."

He added, "Despite the challenges faced by our industry, there are still plenty of diners in London seeking out innovative, quality food. The Malt House is in a prime location to capture these customers and we are looking forward to opening our doors to them."

The Malt House is now shut for refurbishment, reopening within a few months with an estimated 100 covers and six new letting bedrooms.

Brakspear purchased the Malt House from Spirit Group.
