Hammersmith gets a food court for the modern age this January
This January sees the opening of Hammersmith’s most exciting food and beverage concept – Feast Canteen. Breathing life and energy into Kings Mall shopping centre, Feast Canteen will host some of London’s most popular restaurant operators on a rotational basis, bringing both a spectrum of choice and anticipation to the area.
Owned by the hugely successful Incipio Group, the founders of Pergola on the Roof amongst other concepts, this new venture draws on their popularity of hosting several restaurants at their venues, offering variety and the ability to keep drawing customers back for a different experience.
The initial line up of restaurant operators include Patty & Bun, Born & Raised, Salvation in Noodles and Breddos Tacos, providing variety through a mix of complimentary operators. The food court will include 350 covers, opening at breakfast through to dinner alongside a takeaway and delivery service.
Schroders bought Kings Mall in 2015 and have been investing hugely to improve the aesthetics of the scheme. Feast Canteen builds on the success of lettings at Kings Mall with New Look opening a 6,500 sq. ft. store on King Street and Move Your Frame opening their boutique gym concept. Bruce Gillingham Pollard have advised Schroders since purchasing the development.
