St Albans restaurant set to change hands again

The lease on the restaurant space next door to the Alban Arena is for sale once more.
The site was taken over from Relish Real Burgers in April, rebranding as Brew & Cru soon afterwards.
But Refa Denli – who also owns Brew & Cru in Harpenden – is now looking to relinquish the lease early.
Mr Denli said: “While things haven’t worked out as planned in St Albans due to personal reasons, the Harpenden branch of Brew & Cru is doing great business and there are no plans to close whatsoever.”
It’s business as usual at the St Albans branch of Brew & Cru for now, as specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, seeks a buyer.
The recently refurbished space provides 80 covers inside the restaurant, with an additional 30 covers outside.
Tim Widdows, Business Agent at Christie & Co, is handling the sale. He said: “Brew & Cru is a successfully run café and restaurant in a great location that enjoys good footfall.
“Due to the recent high quality fit out, a new operator could take over the business and continue trading immediately or offer an alternative concept to the city – with plenty of scope for growth through extending the opening hours.”
