Propel News Briefing-
The Gladwin brothers – Richard, Oliver and Gregory – have confirmed they will open their sixth site, in Wimbledon. As revealed by Propel in February, the brothers will launch the venue in Wimbledon village, in May. The new restaurant and bar – The Black Sheep – will again be an extension of the company’s “Local & Wild” concept with “a distinct countryside-luxe style serving modern farm-to-fork food in an atmospheric, sprawling space just by the common”. The Black Sheep will take residence in the former White Onion restaurant premises in 67 High Street SW19. The 65-seat venue will be open for lunch and dinner and feature a private dining room. The wine list will champion English wine from the family’s vineyard in West Sussex alongside wine from across the globe housed in the basement wine cellar. The brothers also operate the Notting Hill-based The Shed, Nutborne in Battersea, Rabbit in Chelsea and Sussex in Soho. Last November, the business opened The Fat Badger, its latest lounge bar and dining venture, just off Richmond High Street in the former Gourmet Burger Kitchen site in Hill Rise. Richard Gladwin said: “With the momentum from our recent opening in Richmond behind us, we’re excited to expand our neighbourhood offering in Wimbledon. It’s great to be fighting back post-pandemic and giving people an excuse to dine out again and enjoy the season’s harvest over a glass of wine.”
MKR Property acted on behalf of the outgoing tenant and were delighted to negotiate such a significant premium given the current market conditions.
