Belgravia’s favourite local, The Alfred Tennyson, re-opens in September following a complete refurbishment

August 2017 - Cubitt House, the locally run, independent collection of public houses and hotels proudly serving the neighbourhoods of Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Pimlico and Marylebone, is excited to announce the re-opening of The Alfred Tennyson in the heart of Belgravia in early September 2017 following an extensive refurbishment. The renovation has covered both the interior and exterior of this public house opening up the ground floor, extending the terrace and refurbishing the bar and dining room. Cubitt House has worked with leading interior design agency Coriander Buildings, who have designed fashionable London haunts including Disrepute, Rum Kitchen, Riding House Café amongst others. The refurbishment has retained The Alfred Tennyson’s quintessentially British character and local pub atmosphere, ensuring spaces are comfortable and classic but with a contemporary twist. The ground floor has been completely redesigned, re-locating the bar from the rear to the inside wall, and moving the side entrance to the middle of the building. This has allowed the drinking space to open up, increasing capacity and creating a comfortable open-plan space. The ground floor will have a long leather banquette seat, alongside high tables and an intimate seating area hidden away at the back. The charming outside terrace has expanded and overlooks the cobbles of Motcomb Street and Kinnerton Street. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served every day from a menu that focuses on a daily changing specials board created using sustainable and seasonal produce from local farms and suppliers. Cubitt House is passionate about showcasing the provenance of ingredients with a farm to plate ethos, and a commitment to minimising food wastage. The menu has been designed by Executive Head Chef at Cubitt House, Leigh Hartnett. It includes British classics such as Middle White Pork Scotch Egg, Black Pepper Crusted Lyons Hill lamb, Beer Battered Fish & Chips and a selection of traditional Sunday roasts. Guests can also rely on staples of fish, burgers and a pie of the day too. Key changes: · Extensive refurbishment to Belgravia’s favourite local · Relocation of ground floor bar and entrance providing a more sociable space for drinking and dining · Extension of outdoor terrace on Kinnerton Street · New interiors designed by Coriander Buildings, maintaining the quintessentially British local pub feel · Renewal of first floor dining space; The Boardroom and The Loft · Launch of a new ‘specials’ based menu showcasing seasonal produce and British classics The Alfred Tennyson caters for all occasions, from a quick catch up drink with friends to a more leisurely sit down meal in the dining room on the first floor.
