Hawksmoor, the Graphite Capital-backed group, is set to further strengthen its presence in London, with an opening in Borough.

The Will Beckett and Huw Gott-led group will open a site under its eponymous core brand at 16 Winchester Way next February.

Beckett told MCA: “This is exciting for us. We really aren’t planning to grow Hawksmoor much more in London or the UK so finding a new site in an area that we love is a pretty big deal for us. Aside from that we’re hopeful of growing Foxlow and trying to bring the things we care about - great restaurants, being a great place to work and our social impact - to a wider audience.”

The six-strong group will open its first international restaurant next year in New York.

MCA understands that the group is also in talks on a site in Soho for fledgling neighbourhood-style concept Foxlow.

It currently operates four Foxlow sites in the capital.

The company opened its first regional Hawksmoor site in Manchester last spring.
