Look out for ‘Watch House’ speciality coffee shops


Sherrards’ property and corporate teams have been working with Watch House Coffee, a group of modern London-based coffee shops founded by entrepreneur Roland Horne; offering specialty coffee and food in interestingly designed and often quirky buildings and surroundings.

Watch House Coffee started life at a small yet cosy ‘watch house’ on London’s famous Bermondsey Street, historically a shelter for men guarding St Mary Magdalane Church graveyard at night. Further locations followed at a former spice factory near Tower Bridge and on Fetter Lane in the City, where you can enjoy your coffee under its long grass roof and leafy ceiling.

Partner Charles Hodder has been working with Watch House Coffee over the past two years, advising them on their commercial leases; most recently on the Fetter Lane site.
