Tom Kerridge is to open the Bull & Bear in Manchester's Stock Exchange Hotel on 15 November.
Working with executive chef Dan Scott, Kerridge has developed a menu influenced by the Coach in Marlow for the hotel owned by Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs and Winston Zahra.
The Bull and Bear restaurant will be housed in the grand domed room which was previously the trading floor of the Stock Exchange. Kerridge's team will also be overseeing private dining and events for up to 120 diners.
Dishes will include mushroom “risotto” Claude Bosi, the Coach burger with smoked brisket and dill pickle, and chicken Kiev with cauliflower cheese as well as fish fritter of the day with pease pudding and tartare sauce and crispy pig’s head with celeriac rémoulade and spiced date sauce.
In a statement the Stock Exchange Hotel owners Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs and Winston Zahra said: “Tom’s pubs in Marlow are renowned for creating high quality experiences with a relaxed and traditional approach, taking everyday ingredients and creating special dishes which are accessible to all. Tom has a great humility, he is someone who can really connect with people and we’re very pleased to have partnered with him on the food and beverage operation at the hotel.”
Kerridge added: “The Bull & Bear will be a bit of Marlow up north which we can’t wait to share with the city of Manchester. The food scene up there is so vibrant and exciting and we’re looking forward to being a part of it. Our goal is to be somewhere that people feel welcome and looked after while enjoying some delicious food. The hotel is going to be stunning and it’s a brilliant setting for our first Manchester site.”
