Tender opportunity: Extraordinary Garden Café in a Grade II-listed building, Kennington, London

Tender opportunity: Extraordinary Garden Café in a Grade II-listed building, Kennington, London

Situated just south of the river, Kennington is a multicultural and vibrant hub close to central London, the South Bank, Westminster and the Oval cricket ground.

Kennington is a high-growth area that is gentrifying quickly. Billions of pounds have been invested in regenerating Elephant & Castle, nine minutes' walk to the east, close to Waterloo Station, Nine Elms, Battersea and the Northern Line extension.

The area is underserved by cafés with few truly servicing London's exploding ‘foodie' scene and vegan/vegetarian trends.

It is hoped the café will become an exceptional destination, marrying food and beverage offerings, with the unique property, garden and natural ambience waiting to be fully realised. The Garden Café occupies a prominent light-filled wing and walled garden of a beautiful historic courthouse, adjacent to a dynamic Buddhist Centre, which hosts daily classes and workshops. There is also a B&B and venue hire business that requires catering.
