As part of a phased plan, six specially selected restaurants, dubbed ‘Famous at Fridays’ will be introducing further changes from 6th July. This includes, a simplified and enhanced menu which sees classic dishes return with an investment and upgrade in quality, fresh ingredients and a focus on provenance core to the new menu. There’ll be a re-energised bar with iconic cocktails full of energy & theatre, all of which will be complemented by that iconic Fridays service and generosity of spirit.
