Rumours that restaurant chain Prezzo was interested in opening a branch at the former Conservative headquarters on Wanstead High Street, which we reported in February, seem not to be coming true, though confusingly they may be.
A source with knowledge of the company’s plans told Wansteadium that while the company is in fact keen to open a branch in Wanstead, the ‘Churchill building’ did not meet its requirements.
However a conflicting report comes from another source told us the deal was still on, saying: “Someone in the know told me ….watch that space.”
So to be honest we’re none the wiser. We did ask Prezzo themselves, but they didn’t answer, and who can blame them for that? We’re just a local blog with 555 e-mail subscribers (thanks, everyone).
