Peg London annouces its closure at the end of the week

Peg London is closing at the end of the week due to staffing issues and to help the team consolidate at their other businesses

The team behind Peg London, Noble Fine Liquor, P. Franco Wine Shop, and Bright, have announced, in an Instagram post uploaded yesterday, that Peg will close as the strains on staffing have become too much for the London restaurant to remain open. 


In the post, the team explained that the reason for the restaurant closing is because, as it said, "put simply, the strains on staffing at this current point are such that something has to give." It also said that the closure will allow them to "focus [their] efforts on consolidating across the board."

The post said: "In earnest, we don’t know when / if our doors will open again and for sure it saddens us, but we’re also super proud of all that we’ve achieved."

"We definitely want to continue but unfortunately, closure is a requirement for us to strengthen what we have elsewhere and really push to realise the visions that we’ve always had. Good food, good wine and good times."

Along with that, they also explained how they had tried to ensure that their other operations were stable after Covid before reopening Peg London, but it wasn't enough and the strains not just at Peg were too much and thus they had to close the restaurant to support the other businesses. 

The post ends by saying that the venue will be open all this week and by thanking everyone who has supported the restaurant, saying "thank everyone who’s attended Peg, especially over the past year and of course our brilliant staff past and present."

Also, the post mentions that there are a few plans to continue the use of the restaurant's space for 'some special events with some special friends' but doesn't elaborate.

In these challenging times…
