Italian casual-dining chain Spaghetti House is to close its branch in Victoria, London, at the end of March, after 40 years of trading.
The company is obliged to sell the lease of the property under a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) from Transport from London, as part of its redevelopment of the Victoria Station area.
Commenting on the news, Spaghetti House chief executive Luigi Lavarini said: "We remain committed to finding another site in the Victoria area, adding to our planned expansion programme over the coming years, which will see our presence grow to other parts of Central London and the Greater London area."
The company's other 10 branches, all in London locations, including the recently-opened Spaghetti House Westfield London, continue to trade.
