Bowl food concept Sow has closed its debut London site after two months of trading.

The restaurant was launched in Soho by former Prescott & Conran operations manager Peter Farrell and had the backing of Shemeel Khan, who is also an investor in Stevie Parle's Pastaio.

Chef Frederick Forster, a Roux Scholarship winner, had designed a menu of healthy, made-to-order breakfast and all-day bowls, and the team had plans for further growth.​   

But as first reported by BigHospitality's​ sister site MCA​, the restaurant has shut its doors following its June opening.

Farrell told BigHospitality​ the closure was disappointing as he believed the concept had potential, but the business had become “unsustainable” due to high costs.

“I still believe in the concept but perhaps the timing was not quite right in this current climate,” he says. “Although I don’t have any plans to re-open any time soon, who knows what the future holds.”

Farrell is now consulting for street food traders and restaurants looking to scale up their business.
