A new gastropub looks set to open in the long vacant site on Barley Mow Passage which was last occupied by the Foxlow restaurant.

According to a report in Big Hospitality magazine, the location has been identified as the latest site for a chain of pubs previously based only in south London.

The group currently runs The Earlsfield, as well as Hannah in Battersea, the Heidi in Balham and The Charlotte in Southwark.

In keeping with the tendency to give female names to its bars it is considering Betty as the name for its Chiswick pub.

The bar/restaurants have a similar offering of brunch plus gastropub type fare plus big screen showings of major sports events.

It was founded in 2008 by Steve Novak originally as Cattle Grid, a grill specialist. One Cattle Grid restaurants continues to operate in Windsor.

The site, which was previous Sam’s Brasserie, remain vacant since steakhouse Foxlow shuttered on 18 March 2018 after less than three years.

We have attempted to contact the owners of the pub group reported to be planning the opening.
