Future Looks Bleak for Pappadums Restaurant
Landlord takes possession of premises in Ferry Quays
Pappadums restaurant in Brentford looks set to be the latest casualty of tough trading conditions for the hospitality industry. Its landlord has taken possession of the premises in Ferry Quays with a repossession notice posted in the window.
The popular restaurant was given awards for the quality of its cooking and offered authentic dishes both from the north and the south.
A recent change of management was followed by a rebrand to the Brentford Restaurant a ‘fish bar and curry house’ last July but the relaunch appears to have been stymied by renewed lockdown measures last winter.
A local commercial property agent said, “I don’t know the circumstances in this case but I am aware that many landlords gave substantial leeway to tenants to ensure their businesses survived but are now looking to restore their cash flow. It’s a difficult situation as businesses are being hit by rising costs. There are no good guys and bad guys here and nobody likes to see restaurant like this fail.”
We were unable to make contact with the management at Pappadums.
