Darwin & Wallace has revealed plans to open its latest bar in a former Chiswick fire station next month.

The independent restaurant and bar group will continue its expansion in the capital with the launch of 197 Chiswick Fire Station​ on 26 April.

It will be the fourth London opening for the brand, which specialises in creating ‘21st​ century pubs’ in affluent London ‘villages’ such as Chelsea, Kensington and Soho.

On the menu will be antipodean-influenced dishes such as Pan-fried Seabass and Organic Eggs Benedict.

The bar will feature spirit infusions and house made syrups and sherbets including Lavender Rob Roy and Tanqueray 10 Gimlet.

Mel Marriott, Darwin & Wallace managing director, said: "We are incredibly excited to be bringing our modern vision of the local pub to the heart of Chiswick, one of my favourite London spots.

“Our ambitions at Darwin & Wallace are to work with the best artisans of design, food and drink and No 197 Chiswick Fire Station will be no exception."  

Launched in 2012, Darwin & Wallace is aiming to expand to up to nine sites by 2017.

It will open its fifth site – No29 – at the £8bn Battersea Power Station development​ early next year.  

The company is backed by The Imbiba Partnership, which also supports London-based bar group Drake & Morgan.
