Grace Land secures eighth London pub site: Grace Land, the London-based pub group, is to open an eighth site in the capital, Propel has learned. The business has acquired the Duke of St Albans on Highgate Road. Situated at the main gate to Hampstead Heath along Parliament Hill, the pub has been trading as Swains Wine & Store in recent years. Grace Lands co-founders Andreas Akerlund and Anselm Chatwin said: “We are passionate about bringing back lost pubs and planning a family-friendly place for all to enjoy.” The group plan a major refurbishment to bring back its 150-year-old history. Saturday all-day brunches and Sunday roasts promise to be something extra special, as well as the group’s signature selected beer offer. It follows the acquisition of the London Fields Brewery acquisition from Carlsberg Marston late last year, and the launch of the Saint Monday brewery and bar. Grace Land also operates the Bethnal Green Tavern, The Kings Arms, Red Hand, The Axe, Earl of Essex, and Black Heart in Camden.

Conversion into a restaurant has now been completed. Later an additional residential floor was added.

ASt first became Carob Tree restaurant but that has gone (May 2021) To reopen as a wine bar called Swain's (no website as yet).
