Flat Iron is to mark ten years of serving affordable steak with a tenth restaurant.

Located opposite The Young Vic on the The Cut in Waterloo, Flat Iron’s next site is set to launch in Spring. 

The triple-shop-fronted site, designed by Clare Nash and Applied Studio’s founder Patrick Abrams, draws inspiration from traditional dining rooms and Victorian butcher shops.

Design details will include reclaimed oak floors, Victorian tiles, antique furniture and timber panelling.

Charlie Carroll launched Flat Iron as a pop-up above a pub in the backstreets of Shoreditch in early 2011. 

Now backed by private equity house Piper, the group operates nine restaurants in London, with locations including Covent Garden, Borough, Shoreditch, Soho and King’s Cross. 

“It seems like yesterday and a lifetime ago that I was in that tiny pub kitchen slicing the very first steak for the very first Flat Iron guest,” Carroll says.

“I am excited and proud that almost a decade later, the dream has come so far. We still love to find historic and characterful buildings and to work with passionate craftspeople, enhancing what is there already and giving spaces a new lease of life.”
