Vietnamese restaurant operator Café East has bought the leasehold on the Quebec Curve pub in London's Surrey Quays Leisure Park from pub company Marston's (formerly Wolverhampton & Dudley).
The two-storey, detached property is a converted Victorian waterside warehouse at 100 Redriff Road on the redeveloped Surrey Docks, close to Surrey Quays shopping centre.
It provides a 60-seat open-plan trading area and a further 60 seats in the enclosed courtyard.
Vu Nim of Café East hopes to replicate the success of his other outlets to create a restaurant offering quality Vietnamese food in a relaxed and stylish atmosphere.
The Epsom office of Christie + Co sold the free-of-tie, 25-year leasehold (which runs to March 2023) off a nil premium. Annual rent is £79,941.
