I mentioned last week that Charlotte’s Bistro were not renewing their Club Card membership (they had been offering Club Card members a brilliant 20% discount off weekday lunches).
This week I found out why, The Charlotte’s group of three restaurants is undergoing restructuring and the original restaurant Charlotte’s Place in Ealing is closing for good. Last year it suffered a disastrous fire which started in the kitchen.
Chef- Owner of the Group Alex Wrethman said:
“Whilst we have at last managed to settle our insurance claim somewhat successfully, the restaurant would need huge additional investment on top of this to get it back up and running. Believe me we have explored every avenue available and, despite my determination from a sentimental perspective, it is just not feasible to reopen. In conclusion, and with great sadness, we are today formally announcing the permanent closure of Charlotte’s Place”.
Fortunately for us the Bistro in Chiswick remains open.
You can see all the pubs, cafes and restaurants which continue to offer deals and discounts to Club Card holders here.
