The deal sees Dehesa and Ember Yard in Soho and Salt Yard’s eponymous site in Fitzrovia join the pub group's 14-strong portfolio.
Salt Yard tweeted that there would be ‘no changes’ at the restaurants, which will continue to offer Spanish and Italian cuisine.
Malc Heap, co-founder of Urban Pubs & Bars, told BigHospitality’s sister site MCA earlier this week that all Salt Yard staff would be staying on following the acquisition.
“All employees including head office will be staying on to help us grow this fantastic group of restaurants, with our plan to invest in the existing restaurants and hope to add a few more to the family over the coming years,” said Heap.
The deal follows a year of change at Salt Yard, which launched its first London restaurant in 2005.
2017 saw the departure of the group’s long-time chef director Ben Tish, who stepped down after 11 years to pursue opening his own restaurant.
The company also closed its Italian restaurant Veneta in December after admitting its location in the £400m St James’ Market development, near London’s Piccadilly Circus, was ‘not quite right’ for the concept.
