The council expects Marston’s to refurbish the building by early next year

The world’s largest brewer of cask ales is set to replace a Brewers Fayre restaurant at Sidcup Place.

Marston’s are expected to “substantially refurbish” the 18th century former family home and school, after buying the lease from Brewers Fayre parent company, Whitbread.

“We are delighted that Marston’s have acquired Sidcup Place and that they have made a long-term commitment to the town,” said Linda Bailey, cabinet member for regeneration and growth.

“Recent years have seen significant investment in the town centre and a much wider choice of places to eat out. I am sure the arrival of Marston’s will attract even more trade to the area and we look forward to working with them.”

Plans for the council-owned building, known for its accompanying gardens, are still being developed.

A council spokesperson said: “The refurbishment is unlikely to take place until the autumn, or possibly early next year. Planning permission and listed building consent may be required.”

We have approached Marston’s and Brewers Fayre for comment.
