Annie’s reopening after an upstairs refurbishment

Annie’s restaurant on Strand on the Green has been closed over the summer for refurbishment of the upstairs room. Several people have written to The Chiswick Calendar to ask if we knew what was happening, afraid perhaps that with all this talk of a cost of living crisis and staff shortages, the restaurant might not reopen.

Fear not, owner Lorraine Angliss tells us it will reopen on Wednesday 31 August.

“We have been closed because of the refurbishment of the upstairs and when we reopen on 31 August we will not be going back to serving breakfast, lunch and dinner as we used to. We are suffering from staff shortages like everyone else, so we will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, open for dinner only Wednesdays – Fridays and open for lunch and dinner on Saturdays and Sundays.”

The traffic restrictions to Strand on the Green and Grove Park have also caused problems for Lorraine:

“It’s been a nightmare. It’s like we’re being held hostage.”

At one stage she said she feared the restaurant would close because of the effect the traffic restrictions in Strand on the Green and Grove Park were having on Annie’s in Thames Rd and Little Bird, in Burlington Lane. She opened Rock & Rose in Chiswick High Rd earlier this year because she said, she could be sure there would always be footfall there.
