The Whip Is Out: Unionville Restaurant Cancels Its East King Plans
The English pub-style restaurant had previously expressed interest in opening a second location in Malvern.
The Whip Tavern won't be opening a second location in Malvern Borough, after all.
The owner of the popular Unionville restaurant had expressed interest last year in expanding into the East King Street development. On Monday, though, general manager Allen Hudson confirmed that the restaurant was backing out of the deal, saying the building was not an appropriate fit.
"It just wasn't going to work for us," Hudson said.
East King Street developer Eli Kahn also confirmed the restaurant had changed its plans.
Kahn had first announced The Whip had signed a letter of intent to move into the borough last March, saying, "We are close to executing a lease with The Whip Tavern to open up their second restaurant here in downtown Malvern."
