Coppa Club, the boutique restaurant concept by Sun Capital Partners, is to open its doors in Maidenhead, Berkshire after agreeing a lease with Sorbon Estates, the commercial property arm of the Shanly Group. The restaurant which is owned by Hugh Osmond will unveil its fifth outlet at a prime waterside location in Maidenhead’s town centre next Summer.

Berkshire-based Coppa Club already has locations in Sonning-on-Thames and central London including Tower Bridge, Oxford Circus & St. Paul’s. Maidenhead’s Coppa Club will occupy 4,854 sq ft on the ground floor of the Picturehouse at Shanly Homes’ Chapel Arches scheme and overlook the new Maidenhead waterways with a 996 sq ft outdoor terrace.

“Coppa Club has a real affinity with waterside locations, and so we were drawn to the incredible work the Maidenhead Waterway’s Restoration Group has been doing at Chapel Arches,” explained John Gripton, Coppa Club’s property director.

“A perfect waterside location for Coppa Club, The Picturehouse is a real gem. Maidenhead as a whole is also a really exciting place to be as it gears up to welcome Crossrail in 2019. With so much investment heading into the town, we see this as an exciting opportunity to be part of the town’s wider regeneration.

“What Coppa Club offers is something for everyone, from commuters and shoppers wanting to put their feet up to local workers needing somewhere to hold meetings as well as the after work crowd looking for somewhere to unwind.”

Coppa Club, will maintain its offering of European food from small plates to grilled mains, sourdough pizzas and healthy salads. The bar will serve carefully-chosen wine, beer and cocktails in a stylish, yet relaxed setting throughout the day.

Agents GCW and Nick Young & Co and Kempton Carr Croft assisted with the deal. Commenting on the new lease, Tamra Booth, managing director of Sorbon Estates, said: “Due to its waterside location in the heart of the town’s regeneration area, we received a great deal of interest in this space and we felt that Coppa Club has the best offering for this new environment.

“The boutique style and relaxed ambience of Coppa Club – opposite Bakedd, the artisan bakery which opened recently – is one that reflects our vision for the new urban quarter of Maidenhead. Its position on the waterways will help bring the Chapel Arches part of town to life as a vibrant retail and leisure destination.”

Works on the next and final phase of Shanly Homes’ Chapel Arches development, Waterside Plaza are due to commence in early 2018 where 16,000 sq ft of ground floor space will be available for restaurants, cafes and retail units. Waterside Plaza will provide a further 162 homes to add to the 80 already completed in phases 1 and 2 alongside the new waterways to create a vibrant urban quarter in Maidenhead.
