Holborn Leisure, the Ducalian Capital-backed pub group, has confirmed three new openings over the next three months.

The James McCulloch-led group is preparing to re-launch the Three Cranes in the City in November, the Coach & Horses in Clerkenwell in January and the Truscott Arms, which will re-open with a new name in February.

The food side of the business will be led by Racine founder Henry Harris, while Shane Styles was appointed as operations director.

Harris said: “I’m excited to be back in the kitchen. I see myself more as Admiral of the Fleet than Chef-Director, but it’s a great feeling to be planning great menus for each of these dining rooms with these excellent new teams.”

McCulloch said: “We originally asked Henry to join as a consultant, but thanks to our mutual desire to create noteworthy pubs with exceptional dining, we invited him to become a partner so we can all work together to create genuinely special establishments.”
