FOOD-led pub group Geronimo Inns is set to open four pubs in the next three months.
The first to open will be the Crown in Victoria Park, London on 15 March. The Crown is set to be Geronimo`s "most ambitious launch yet" and will be closer to the restaurant format than Geronimo`s other venues.
The company, headed by Rupert Clevely, will also fully open its site at the new Eurostar Terminal in St Pancras Station in March.
It is currently operating a smaller unit called the Baby Betjeman at the station, which will be retitled the Betjeman Arms on its full launch in April.
Geronimo, which is backed by Penta Capital, will also open its third pub at Heathrow, the Five Tuns, in the airport`s new Terminal Five building.
The fourth opening will be the Red Barn in Lingfield, Surrey in April. The pub was a former Brewers Fayre that was sold to Mitchells & Butlers as part of the package of 239 Whitbread sites acquired in August last year.
The Red Barn will include a farm shop called "Snowtes".
Geronimo has also appointed Ben Maschler, son of renowned restaurant critic Fay Maschler, as food director.
