The opening plays an integral role in the £3.5m development of the Holiday Inn Brighton – Seafront, which is run and managed by Kew Green Hotels Group.
The venue will seat 146-covers inside and further 40-covers in an al fresco dining terrace.
Simon Burdess, IHG’s vice president, food and beverage, Europe said: “The launch of Stock Burger Co. at the Holiday Inn Brighton Seafront continues the story of IHG’s renewed vigour in the food and beverage area. We are confident that this innovative new restaurant offering will serve as a major opportunity to drive guest satisfaction and to improve financial returns for our owners.”
Taking inspiration from the growing gourmet burger and craft beer market, Stock Burger Co.’s menu will serve burgers made from 100 per cent Glenarm Shorthorn beef, which is sourced from Northern Ireland. Beef short ribs and rump steak will be supplied by Himalayan Salt Chamber. Hot dogs, salads and mini-desserts join them on the menu, along with craft beers and cocktails.
The concept was created for IHG by Wayne Horo, director of food and beverage concept development for Europe, in partnership with Mick Newton, director of food and beverage development for Kew Green, with the aim of creating a ‘unique’ standalone venue in Brighton where hotel guests and the local community can eat, drink and socialise.
Paul Johnson, founding director of Kew Green Hotels, said: “Stock Burger Co. is a totally new approach for us. It will not only give guests at Holiday Inn Brighton Seafront a stylish and inviting space in which to enjoy great food and drink, but also offer a welcome addition to the city’s hospitality scene. The fact that we can support some of the UK’s leading independent producers and suppliers at the same time makes it all the more exciting.”
