Spirited competition for Brighton venue

Competition for the former Rock n Roller on Brighton’s Western Road was strong but casual dining and bar operators Loungers emerged victorious, agreeing a leasehold assignment deal through licensed leisure specialists AG&G.

“Though the previous encumbants didn’t succeed the unit previously traded very well as a Loch Fyne restaurant,” says AG&G director James Grimes. “It’s not only in a beautiful listed building designed by the renowned Regency architects Busby and Wilds but also in an up and coming pitch between Brighton and Hove. A revamped branch of Waitrose across the road is also proving to be a big draw.”

The ground floor has an open plan bar with a commercial kitchen, and there is a large open trading area on the first floor. In the basement are beer and other storage areas, customer lavatories and a manager’s office.

Loungers Western Road, will open in March under the branch name Verano.
