R.I.P. Wanstead’s Olive Branch…

Wanstead Olive BranchLong live the Olive Branch.

As Wansteadium revealed in April, the Olive Branch was put up for sale. And the sale has now gone through, the cafe is now under new management. So what does the future hold?

The answer is that the cafe will stay open for the next few weeks, but then it will shut for about six weeks for refurbishment, and will re-open in the autumn as a cafe by day and a Portuguese restaurant by night. The name is as yet a secret, but it won’t be a Nando’s. New proprietor very friendly, so prospects look bright.
