Whitbread to launch Bar + Block Steakhouse in Wimbeldon

Whitbread is set to launch its eighth Bar + Block Steakhouse following the successful roll-out in Nottingham, Aldgate and Leamington Spa in 2018. On 8th February, the new steak-focussed all-day casual dining restaurant will open on The Broadway in Wimbledon, London.

Bar + Block Wimbledon will be a 302-square metre, 156 cover informal steakhouse serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, with an emphasis on delivering high quality steaks at affordable prices. 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, innovative 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, comfy 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.

Nathalie Pomroy, Chief Marketing Officer for Whitbread Restaurants, comments: “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.”
