The 65-cover restaurant is the seventh and newest location for the group and, following the refurbishment, an introduction of a ‘light bite’ menu is expected next month for drinkers at the new marble bar.

Nick Hill, joint owner of Black and Blue, said: “King’s Road Black and Blue looks absolutely brilliant following the refurbishment.  The gorgeous booths and new bar are the perfect setting for a bite to eat and drink.  We look forward to welcoming back our loyal customers as well as a new crowd who know and love Black and Blue."

The King’s Road branch was the first for the chain to serve a lighter lunch menu alternative and the first to cater for breakfasts. The restaurant group also operates venues on the Southbank and at Notting Hill Gate.
