The 1,000 sq ft, 40-cover site will be open from 8am to 8pm, and serve a menu created by baker George Heron, who has worked with Peyton to create handmade cakes, biscuits, pies, tarts, savouries, and healthy breakfasts inspired by traditional British recipes.
The new location will also launch a new range of Peyton and Byrne products that will then be available across the group, including savoury and seasonal items.
Décor will feature a herringbone parquet floor, oak panelling, original brickwork, and custom-made ceramic pendant lighting, with a mixture of furniture such as ash chairs and two bespoke banquettes. There will also be outdoor seating.
Oliver Peyton, owner of Peyton and Byrne says: “We are delighted to have expanded our list of bakeries to five and to launch our new product range at the Great Portland Street bakery. This bakery will be the perfect place to stock up for an impromptu picnic in Regent’s Park, whilst also catering to local office workers looking for a quality weekday lunch.”
There are four other Peyton and Byrne cafés, comprising Hammersmith, Greenwich, Covent Garden, and Central St Giles.
The Peyton and Byrne group also operates outlets in a host of London visitor attractions, including the RA Grand Café at the Royal Academy of Arts; The National Café and The National Dining Rooms at The National Gallery; and The Wallace Restaurant in the Wallace Collection.
It also runs Inn The Park in St James’s Park, The Café at the Imperial War Museum (IWM), The Orangery at Kew (Gardens), and The Keeper’s House and Lyric Bar and Grill at The Lyric Hammersmith.
