The Coach Makers Arms will be the fifth site in the group’s portfolio of pubs and hotels, alongside The Thomas Cubitt, The Alfred Tennyson and The Orange in Belgravia and The Grazing Goat in Marylebone.
The acquisition of the pub, which first opened its doors 140 years ago, is the group’s first since 2010.
Interior design agency Coriander Buildings (which designed Rum Kitchen, Disrepute and Riding House Café) has been on site since 18 September.
Once revamped, the three-storey building will feature three bars, one on each floor, with a 50-cover bar and dining room and an underground cocktail bar.
The all-day menu will be prepared using the “finest, sustainable ingredients” with an “emphasis on daily specials”, according to Cubitt House’s website. Meats will be cured in-house, and suppliers will include Trecorras Farm, Lyme Bay Fish Reserve and Lyons Hill Farm.
The pub will have the largest selection of beers out of any of the group’s venues, alongside wines, spirits and a cocktail menu.
