Fallen Into Administration After The Landlord Hiked The Rent 60 Per Cent.

Recommended Posts

It was elementary: the London restaurant where Dr Watson first hears of Sherlock Holmes in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s debut novel has fallen into administration after the landlord hiked the rent 60 per cent.

The Grade II-listed Criterion, which first opened its doors in Piccadilly Circus in 1874, is one of the 10 oldest restaurants in the world and, until Marco Pierre White took charge, was better known for its neo-Byzantine style than its gastronomy.

Bought in 2009 by the Georgian Sopromadze family through holding company Vox Restaurants they called in UHY Hacker Young as administrator last week.

Beautiful place. Haven't eaten there in a while, though.

I don't have any inside knowledge but if its now like the rest of MPW's dismal chaiin, I suspect its failure is more to do with appalling food/service than any rent rise.
