Roland Horne, founder of The Watch House coffee shops on Bermondsey Street and Tower Bridge, is to launch a third site in London next week.

Located on Fetter Lane in Holborn - a three minute walk from Chancery Lane station – the 30-cover premises will open on Monday [25 September] serving coffee from 7am each morning alongside hot and cold breakfast options including the ‘Watch House eggs benedict - made using orange marmalade marinade.

The company will also serve handmade sandwiches, baguettes and salads, hot options and brunch board specials throughout the day and at 5pm each night, the eatery will double up an after-work cocktail bar serving nibbles and tapas-style plates including padron peppers, jalapeno cornbread from £5 alongside wines and cocktails.

Roland Horne launched The Watch House, a quality coffee bar and eatery housed in an historic-listed watch house building, on Bermondsey Street in 2014.

A second larger site followed in 2016 in Tower Bridge inside a former Victorian warehouse conversion.

Features of the third building include a suspended live garden, grass roof, floor to ceiling windows and bespoke Terrazzo bar.

“We are excited about launching the Fetter Lane site, our first in the City, and we believe a real show stopper,” Roland Horne said.

“The unusual design of the building really drew me to it, and I can’t wait to bring our speciality coffee and homely handmade food to the area, as well as our evening cocktail bar offering – it’s always about quality and that’s what we proudly do across the board.”
