London pub and bar group Grand Union is next month opening its fifth pub so far this year in Camberwell Grove.
The group said it plans to bring its portfolio up to 12 pubs by the start of next year and expand nationally by 2012.
Adam Marshall, managing director of Grand Union, said he was delighted to be opening the pub which is located close to the Camberwell College of Arts.
"We are delighted to be taking over the beautiful Grove Pub in Camberwell Green and believe our unique design and menu will blend perfectly in this up-and-coming area of South East London. We're pleased to be working with Young's to develop this property into a sophisticated yet accessible venue," he said.
Grand Union launched pubs in Brixton in February, Kennington in March; the Grand Union at the Three Locks in Stoke Hammond, Buckinghamshire in April and another pub in Ravenscourt Park in May.
Earlier this month Grand Union also launched discounted vouchers for customers to use across its existing eight pubs and bars in London to boost trade during the recession.
"Times are tough for many at the moment, so we've decided to cheer everyone up with some genuinely free money. There really are no catches," said Grand Union Group owner Adam Marshall.
Customers who spend £50 on vouchers receive £60 worth of food and drink at any of the Grand Union pubs and bars and there is no restriction on the number of vouchers per person.
