Leeds-based smokehouse group Reds True Barbecue is opening its first London site in Shoreditch in July.

Following a £1.4m investment the group will develop the 150-cover restaurant over two floors.

The rapidly expanding brand currently has four sites across the North and Midlands, with plans to reach 15 across the UK​ by 2018.

James Douglas, Red’s co-founder, said: "London was always part of the strategy. Now with our strengthened management team, the time and location is right to strike. 

“Unlike the North where a huge part of our role as brand leaders has been to educate customers about US style barbecue, there is already a saliency here in London. Red’s will bring something unique to Shoreditch.”

In 2014 Red's was tipped by advisory firm BDO​ to be among restaurants leading the rising popularity of barbecue and smokehouse food in 2015, alongside Bodean's, Porky's and Jackson & Rye.

Reds True Barbecue Shoreditch is set to open at 52-54 Great Eastern street.
