Bar and pub operator ETM Group has announced it is set to open its 13th site in west London – a gastropub with its own purpose-built microbrewery.
The group, owned by Tom and Ed Martin (pictured), is currently refurbishing the Ealing Park Tavern in south Ealing for opening in mid-December.
The historic 5,000 sq ft pub is part of the London Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors and was once the Lewis Furnell Brewhouse brewing its own beers from 1728 until the mid 1800s.
It will have an open-plan kitchen, a 60-cover dining room, a large bar, two flexible private events spaces and a large garden with three cabanas.
Key design features include a polished timber bar, reclaimed timber flooring, a mix of seating that includes red leather banquettes, tub chairs, and a theatre kitchen behind a smoked glass screen.
Acknowledging its brewing legacy, a stand-out element will be the microbrewery – a first for ETM. This will produce its own range of beers, including bitters, pale ales and seasonal brews for the gastropub as well as its sister ETM venues around London such as The Jugged Hare in the City and The Gun in Docklands.
As well as ales, the gastropub will offer an extensive list of over 100 “accessible” wines, including those from its Enomatic wine dispenser, as well as premium bottled lagers, cider, spirits and classic cocktails.
A range of menus includes lunch, dinner, bar snacks and Sunday lunch, all characterised by the use of British and European seasonal produce sourced from select UK farms and niche suppliers. Average spend per head for a three-course meal with wine is £35.
Tom said: “We are extremely excited about this launch and to be brewing our own ales for the very first time. Ealing Park Tavern will be very much a neighbourhood pub serving the local community with quality food, drink and service as well as an ever-evolving roster of events.”
ETM’s bars and restaurants also include The Botanist in Chelsea, Chiswell Street Dining Rooms and One Canada Square in Docklands.
