UK operator Whitbread is set to launch a new Bar + Block Steakhouse next month in Wimbledon.

The new 156-cover steak-focussed all-day casual dining restaurant will open on The Broadway in Wimbledon, London in early February.

Signature dishes include rotating steak specials from the Butcher’s Block, as well as the Tiro De Ancho, a chargrilled 14oz spiral cut ribeye, marinated in garlic, parsley and chilli and served with beef dripping chunky chips and chimichurri.

Bar + Block will also offer an extensive drinks range, with a focus on craft beers, cocktails and a specially curated wine list.

The modern design, inspired by the theatre of food and drink, will feature a large bar with copper detailing and an open kitchen, complemented by reclaimed wood, high-quality fabrics, comfortable seating and warm lighting. Decorative finishing touches include the brand’s signature neon cow and wall calligraphy detailing the brand story, alongside a number of contemporary artwork pieces.

The new opening follows the successful roll out of Bar + Block in Nottingham, Aldgate and Leamington Spa in 2018.

Nathalie Pomroy, chief marketing officer for Whitbread Restaurants, said: “We’re very excited to continue growing the Bar + Block brand with our newest opening in Wimbledon.

“Following the ongoing success of our Kings Cross site and the opening of our Aldgate venue towards the end of last year, we’re confident that our third London restaurant will be a welcome addition to the capital’s ever-growing food and drink scene.”
