D&D London to close Kensington Place after 30 years

D&D London has announced it will be closing its Kensington Place restaurant and fish shop in London on 21 March.

The restaurant is making way for the redevelopment of the Newcombe House site, which includes the restaurant, by Brockton Capital and U+I. It is set to make way for a major new housing, shopping and office development including a 17-storey tower.

Following closure, the majority of staff will transfer to other restaurants within the D&D London group.

Des Gunewardena, chief executive and chairman of D&D London, said: "Kensington Place has had an illustrious history since it first opened in 1987. It was one of the restaurants that kickstarted the renaissance of London restaurants and we have been its proud owners since 2007. We will miss Kensington Place dearly and we hope that many of our customers and friends will join us in our last few weeks to wish KP a very jolly goodbye."
