The team behind pub operator Cubitt House have announced they are set to open their new London bar and restaurant in March next year.

Percy & Founders will be on a prominent corner of Mortimer Street in Fitzrovia, within the new Fitzroy Place development being built on the site of the former Middlesex Hospital.

The venue’s name is inspired by the Duke of Northumberland, Hugh Percy, and the group of philanthropists who founded Middlesex Hospital in 1755.

Open all day every day, Percy & Founders is described as “an exciting new social destination offering Londoners everything from a morning coffee or breakfast through to lunch, dinner and evening cocktails”.

With 200 covers, the menu will feature simple British and modern European food, under executive chef Diego Cardoso, who was most recently head chef at Angela Hartnett’s Mayfair restaurant Murano.

Percy & Founders is the first creation of Open House, the new sister company to Cubitt House which operates premium pubs in Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Pimlico and Marylebone including The Orange, The Grazing Goat and the Thomas Cubitt (pictured).

Percy & Founders marks the group’s evolution from the traditional pub to more contemporary all-day dining venues, set in beautifully designed informal surroundings. Cubitt House was founded by Stefan Turnbull and Barry Hirst.
