The 150-seater venue will be in the Brewery Wharf development, a Berkeley Group project on the site of the old Royal Mail sorting office which includes more than 100 flats and houses as well as a 320-capacity performance space. The rugby stadium and station are both within easy walking distance.
The M Bar and Grill will be a more relaxed version of the central London branches, with wine on tap and a menu of modern British dishes including what is described as the first 100% Highland wagyu beef to be served in a British restaurant.
Group founder Martin Williams and M executive head chef Michael Reid (pictured) planned the opening following last year’s Brexit vote, on the basis that residents of southwest London were increasingly likely to eat and drink locally in preference to commuting into town.
Williams launched the original M in Threadneedle Street, near the Bank of England in the City of London, in 2014. A branch opened in Victoria Street the following year.
