Searcy contract caterer, founded in 1847, has been bought by The Alternative Hotel Group.

Meanwhile, Searcy's Chief Executive John Nugent announced plans to leave the company next year, to open his own restaurant, concert bar, café and event space in the new Kings Place development in London's Kings Cross in October 2008.

Nugent said he wasn't leaving as a result of the takeover, saying "The Alternative Hotel Group is the best fit we could hope for" but said, "I've always wanted to open my own business".

Searcy's current contracts include restaurants at the Gherkin and the National Portrait Gallery, as well as new contracts at St Pancras International, where a Champagne bar, brasserie, bar/café and private dining room will open in November, and at the London Transport Museum.
