David Beckham and Gordon Ramsay unveil new London restaurant interior

David Beckham and Gordon Ramsay have cemented their friendship with the opening of a new restaurant in an upcoming corner of South East London.

Union Street Café is due to open on Monday, September 16, with an official launch party in the following weeks that is likely to see most of the Beckham and Ramsay clans in attendance.

Zoopla has been given an exclusive sneak preview of the stunning venue, designed exclusively by Russell Sage.

The feel of the interiors is undisputedly ‘relaxed urban’, with suggestions that the waiting staff may wear Converse footwear – while the menu will be Mediterranean.

The opening of the restaurant comes amid the transformation of the once run-down derelict confines of SE1.

The area rests in the shadows of the recently erected and now iconic Shard building, with businesses such as Murdoch’s British newspapers and Zoopla now calling it home.

The area certainly has a buzz about it, and so it is unsurprising that house prices are high. Extremely smart two bedroom flats can reach as much as £2m.

The average value of a flat in SE1 is £542,732, with a typical detached property in the region of £730,387, according to Zoopla.

Jonathan Harris, director of mortgage broker Anderson Harris, said: “The Shard has lifted the whole area and had a positive knock-on effect. People visit and then go for dinner locally afterwards, which is good for local restaurants and the art scene has also improved as artists move from Shoreditch.

“There are pockets of wealth developing which we haven’t seen in the past and this is increasingly attracting new buyers, investment and improved transport links to the area.”
