SSP acquires bar/restaurant at Waterloo Station
Cabin opened at the end of July. The bar is based on the mystique, intrigue and luxury of the Orient Express combined with a contemporary feel. Cabin featured the first ever self-service wine machine to be installed at a major train station.
The menu features British tapas that can be enjoyed with martini cocktails, exclusive ales and fine wines. Customers can also buy take-out coffee, muffins, wine and made-to-order picnic hampers, featuring cured meats, speciality cheeses and freshly baked bread.
"The new executive team at C&B Bars has recently completed a strategic review of the company's bar estate. This has resulted in a decision to terminate C&B's interest in Cabin at Waterloo Station,” said Ed Gardner, Managing Director, Corney & Barrow Bars. The Company is involved in a number of projects in the area, including the Square Mile and Canary Wharf.
“We are very pleased to be including Cabin in our growing portfolio of premium bars, such as The Merchant at Liverpool Street and The Grain Loft at Manchester Airport,” said Mark Angela, Chief Executive, SSP UK & Ireland. “Bars and pubs form a key part of our strategy as we focus on upgrading our estate and introducing premium offers as part of the mix.”
