Franklins, a good-quality restaurant near the Oval, has closed. The website states that this is “due to unforeseen circumstances”, but it seems fair to conjecture that the economic situation has something to do with it. The sibling operation in Dulwich is unaffected.

The closure follows in the steps of Snows on the Green and the Brackenbury in Hammersmith. On the restaurant front, it is beginning to look as if local restaurants just outside inner London – the doughnut of areas estate agents used to call ‘up-and-coming’ – are going to be among those hardest hit by economic stringency, however commendable the operations may individually be.
