WHITBREAD is on the lookout to recruit managers for a new pub-restaurant brand called Table Table.
The group, which also runs the Beefeater and Brewers Fayre chains, plans to transform about 75 of its 400-plus pubs to the new concept following an extensive refurbishment programme.
Six sites across the UK are currently trialling the concept, which is described as a "stylish, accessible, sociable restaurant" brand targeting families, groups and couples.
Like Beefeater and Brewers Fayre, Table Table outlets will trade alongside Whitbread`s Premier Inn sites, with hotel guests a key target market for the brand.
As well as transferring some refurbished Brewer`s Fayre sites to the new brand, there are plans to include Table Table in some new-build Premier Inn locations.
The Table Table menu includes upmarket pub food including sausage and mash, fish and chips and steak.
As well as draught and bottled beers there is a list of more than 25 wines chosen to match dishes on the menu.
