Food and drink firm Pret a Manger is opening a new branch in Haverstock Hill, and still has plans for South End Green

The chain's latest offering will be next door to Belsize Park tube station – and eagle-eyed locals will have spotted hoardings bearing logos last week. 

The new Pret will take the unit on the front of new build flats in front of the Globe Tennis Club. Prior to redevelopment, it was home to the Hampstead Emporium and then the Good For You party supplies shop. 

Good For You was destroyed in a fire in 2014.

Pret also plans to move into the former Monica clothes shop at 37-39 South End Road, but it is still awaiting safety permissions after a structural survey by National Rail.

Last year the company announced it was closing a number of city centre outlets and it is altering its business model to meet a post-Covid reality.
