A Mano

A Mano, meaning 'by hand' in Italian, opened its doors on Orpington High Street in September 2018. The award-winning café-restaurant was founded by London-born, Italian-raised restaurateur and butcher, Bruno and his family and offers a full restaurant experience, successful takeaway service and a deli.

Following many years in the industry, it was Bruno’s decision to retire and seek out a tenant to take over that led to the leasehold becoming available. The newly created lease has been secured by Roshani Singh, who intends to continue running the restaurant ‘as is’ and evolving the offer over time. Bruno and his family will remain the freehold owners of the property.

David Wilson, Associate Director – London Pubs & Restaurants at Christie & Co is managing the sales process. He comments, “A Mano is a fantastic business occupying an optimum position on the busy high street. I’m delighted to have facilitated the leasehold sale to Roshani, who plans to continue to deliver the restaurants British and Italian favourites in the relaxed and informal brasserie setting.

“This deal is reflective of the appetite we are currently seeing for leaseholds. Restaurant leases in high footfall areas are back in demand and we encourage anyone operating a similar business and looking to sell the leasehold interest to get in touch.”
