The premises due to be taken over by Costa

A new branch of Costa Coffee is about to open at 566 Kings Road, at the eastern end of Fulham.

Work is currently underway fitting out the site, formerly a store selling mattresses and bedding, which has been empty and available to rent for some time. A notice on the window says the new Costa is looking for managers, assistant managers and baristas ‘with immediate start’ and advises applicants to send their CV’s to

This will be the coffee chain’s second store in Fulham, alongside a recently opened branch within the Shell Recharge EV charging hub at the foot of Fulham Road.

The new branch will also play a part in the revival of this stretch of Kings Road, close to the Fulham/Chelsea border, where a number of pubs and restaurants have closed and been replaced by bathroom and antique shops.

The new Costa is next door to the popular pizza and pasta restaurant L’Antico, and is opposite Fulham’s original branch of Mediterranean restaurant Megan’s. This stretch also includes two surviving pubs - The Imperial Arms and King’s House, which as we reported earlier this month, has recently reopened on the site of The Lost Hours with a new identity and a new ‘Basque English’ menu.
