Herman ze German to close all UK sites

German eatery brand Herman ze German has announced it will permanently close its four London sites due to the impact of Covid-19 and Brexit.

In a post on Instagram the brand said: "Sadly we have to announce that after more than 10 wonderful years in London, Herman ze German will permanently close all London locations. Covid-19 has hit us really hard, as it probably has most of you too. Knowing that Brexit will follow at the end of this year, we had no other choice but to pull the plug.

"There is no way for us to go any further with the restaurants in the UK. We are extremely gutted as we put our heart and soul into this project, delivering you our delicious Currywurst and German beers. And we loved it! Many thanks for supporting us for so many years."

After launching in 2008, the group, founded by Azadeh Falakshahi and Florian Frey, expanded to include sites in Charing Cross, White City, Soho and Fitzrovia, as well as one site and a food truck in Germany.

The brand specialised in currywurst as well as other German sausages sourced from the Black Forest, schnitzel and German drinks.
