CLOCKJACK OVEN OFF AND RUNNING

Clockjack Oven, a new rotisserie chicken concept founded by Jerry Goldberg & Fraser Duncan, have secured their first premises on Denman Street in London’s Soho.

The Indian restaurant they will refurbish, previously traded as The Maharaja, featured on Channel 5’s Restaurant Inspector program and has been in the same ownership for 35 years. It extends to approximately 1,154 sq ft, is arranged solely on ground floor, is rented at £80,000 and was sold for an undisclosed premium.

The road is in a district that has changed much in recent years thanks mainly to The Crown’s Quadrant 3 redevelopment which boasts tenants such as The Wolseley’s Parisian Brasserie Zedel, Whole Foods and office tenants such as Generation Investment management, a company co-founded by former US vice president Al Gore. It is also understood the Jamie Oliver’s Union Jack will be opening opposite whilst Firmdale will open a 90 bed boutique hotel and cinema. Clockjack Oven cooks free range chicken over a special rotisserie to create great tasting, succulent chicken. Clockjack Oven will be looking for further sites in the New Year.
