Ludo opened in July 2010 in what had previously been a Woolworths. They only built Woolworths' big and, whilst this was a 'small' Woollies, it's still the biggest building we've taken on. She's got a whopping 130 covers internally and 80 covers externally, the majority of which are located on Ludo's stunning first floor roof terrace. Southbourne Grove is a fab little High Street with loads of quirky independent retailers. It's also by the sea, so pack your swimming cossie.
Ludo's first floor terrace was created by removing the middle third of the first floor roof. We also removed the floor between the ground and first floors to the front third of the building to create an impressive double-height space.
Ludo's back-bar counter was constructed out of the original hardwood Woolworth's sign. We also have Woolworth's light box sign on Ludo's terrace as homage to the buildings past.
