The late Trevor Shelley, met Des Gunewardena well over 20 years ago and established a strong working relationship and friendship.

In the past 5 years every department within Shelley Sandzer has added value to the D&D portfolio. High Street Agency acquired New Street Grill, Leasing department on behalf of Land Sec, established both Angelica & Craft House in Trinity Leeds, our professional department strategically advises on the portfolio including high profile sites such as Quaglinos, Bluebird and 100 Wardour Street.

Most recently we advised Generalli on the Roof Top 120 Fenchurch Street where we acted on the leasing to D&D London’s 14 Hills. With another high-profile London opening pending we continue to help D&D business flourish.

"I've been advised on new sites by Ted, and before Ted, by the legendary Trevor Shelley, for over 20 years. Shelley Sandzer has secured us many locations both in London and in other UK cities. They introduced Trinity Leeds where D&D opened Crafthouse and Angelica, our first restaurants in the UK outside London. And in London Ted and his team have secured for us our most recent acquisition for a landmark restaurant in East London. Duncan Lillie has also been excellent through the years and handles most of our rent reviews. They are a great team, good at what they do and definitely the best dressed property agents in London. Don’t ever lose that hat Ted!"
