SSP opens Leon and Cabin at London Paddington station

Travel caterer SSP Group has opened outlets of Leon and its Cabin bar concept at London Paddington station.

The 2,700 sq ft Leon outlet is the second Leon to be opened by SSP, following the announcement of a five-year partnership with the healthy eating brand last year and the opening of Leon London Liverpool Street station.

The Cabin, which extends over 2,300 sq ft, is SSP's own concept and has sites already at London Waterloo station as well as in Manchester, Stansted, Bristol and Newcastle airports.

Both new developments are located on the balcony, a seating area that overlooks the concourse in the area known as ‘the lawn'.

Simon Smith, chief executive of SSP UK, said: "The addition of these brands will enhance the offering available to passengers at the station, giving commuters and tourists alike more options of where to grab a bite to eat before boarding their train, and will serve as a great place for people who live and work in the area to have a lunch time snack or an after-work drink."

John Vincent, Leon co-founder and chief executive, said: "We have always said we want to be there when people need us, and travelling makes you tired and hungry. Paddington travellers can now leave their marmalade sandwiches at home and fill up with tasty Leon food instead."

Hamish Kiernan, commercial director of retail for Network Rail Property, added: "The new additions from SSP into the rejuvenated Paddington lawn help bolster both our daytime and evening offer."
