Tom Kerridge is opening The Butcher’s Tap & Grill on Tyron Street, Chelsea towards the end of this year.
Following the success of The Butcher’s Tap & Grill in Marlow which opened in 2017, the opportunity to lease a two-storey Victorian property just around the corner from Sloane Square was too good to turn down.
The 100 cover pub will predominately be wet led, with a British centric menu of butcher-cuts, burgers, hot dogs, and small bites all sourced from carefully selected producers.
A rotating roster of drinks will include Marlow favourite Rebellion Lager alongside some local London craft beers. The wine list has been carefully chosen by Gavin Hills from The Hand & Flowers and will include wines by the glass, predominantly new world.
The site was formerly The Queen’s Head, the new pub will be on two levels with carefully designed areas for drinking, eating, and celebrating. Reflecting the location, the pub will feature a beautiful focal hardwood bar topped with zinc, handmade lighting, curated art, vintage flooring and British made decorative tiles.
Comfortable booth seating in cracked olive and chestnut leather creates an inviting and welcoming space. A bespoke timber staircase leads to the basement level where the open plan kitchen will create a sense of theatre.
Open for lunch all day and supper The Butcher’s Tap & Grill will serve a roast every Sunday and a takeaway service will offer classic burgers and hotdogs.
Kerridge said of his latest opening: “We are delighted to have secured such a prestigious location for our second Butcher’s Tap & Grill. The pub will be a spin off from the original, in that it is not a carbon copy of the Marlow pub, more emphasis will be placed on drinks and the bar in Chelsea and we will not offer a takeaway butcher’s service, but guests will be able to choose their cuts from the meat fridge.
“We very much want to be a local’s local, somewhere to pop in, have a pint, watch some sport have a bite and relax. We will also be dog friendly so well behaved four legged friends are very welcome too.”
The pub is due to open in late 2023.
